After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
While this system does allow easy removal without having to remove the motherboard it is still based on 2 points of contact and a very small contact patch at the center of the heatsink. While this tends to be all that is required we much prefer a more solid 4 corner mounting method as Intel had intended.
