3 out of 5 eggs Will work with some Mobo's 02/23/2011

This review is from: ZALMAN ZM-CS4A Socket 1366 Clip Support Kit for CNPS9500/9700

Pros:

Decent solution for older Zalman CPU Coolers designed for Socket 775. It's cheap.

Cons:

No Mobo backing plate. Will not work with the Intel DX58SO2 mobo.

Other Thoughts:

This solution will not work with the new Intel DX58SO2 mainboard. This is due to the fact that the screws that are used to secure the clip to the top bracket are tall to fit under a cooling pipe near the processor socket. This will only affect builders using the Intel DX58SO2 mobo. This will be an issue for those considering to use a later model Zalman cooler as they bundle the same bracked with the newer coolers.

I went with a Corsair H50 to solve my issue.

Zalman chose not to use a backplate and instead included pin and washers.

I'm sure this clip will work just fine for most users but wanted to give the Intel builders a heads up.
