Sure makes sense to me ! Thinking of drilling and tapping my volcano 6 to accept nylon studs and then nut it on the bottom. Think it'll fly (or play the violin?) Regards,

i'd leave it alone, heatsinks need to have enough preasure on them to take the heat from the cpu without applying too much to crush teh cpu, the ppl that design heatsinks figure this in when making the heastsink and clip.
