The turn lock system doesn't seem all that great. Yes its very easy to install but along with that you have problems with smearing thermal compound and it doesn't apply pressure to keep the CPU flat so theres more unevenness on both the heatsink and CPU to worry about.

That is what I thought too, but it doesn't say that the cooler should be turned... though its hard to think that the system would be on the mobo... but who knows... Spire hasn't done any great cooler product that I know of. I have (slightly modded) Verticool III on my old socket A rig... All copper but intermediate capacity, should try on phenom, what its worth.
