SLK-900U Installation

Hi:
This is the first time I assemble a computer and I wanted to know if it is compatible the use of Thermaltake COPPER SHIM and the Thermalright SLK-900U. In other words, can I leave the shim to protect the CPU and install the SLK-900U over it or do I have to remove the shim in order to be able to install the SLK-900U.
Any comments will be sincerely appreciated.

you can leave the shim on, it'll stop you chipping the cpu core if your clumsy, it'll prolly add about 2c to your temps as well. I'd recomend not using the shim and use a proper fitting screwdriver to install the Heatsink, and do this before you put the motherboard in the case, its so much easier. you gotta be quite forcefull and clumsy to chip a core, but it can happen. up to you.

I'd like to warn that (at least with my old chip, which may have been from a less-than-wonderful source) it's easier than you think to crack off a corner of the core (just a little HSF wiggling, possibly even). That SLK-900U, if I remember correctly, has the three clip mounting design, which is better than the one clip, so is a little more stable, but not as good as a four hole mount.

Doesnt the SLK 900 use the four mounting holes to support the cooler?
