What about the metal spring clip in the center of a HS ?

I was sitting here wondering about the hold down clip that runs in the middle of most HS's over the core.

Where the metal is probably not good @ removing heat.

Anyone ever try mounting one without the center clip and using the 4 holes to see if makes any difference?

Or maybe I just need some sleep, am still up since yesterday

Maybe some sleep is in order.

I suppose you could do this. But i'm curious as to how you would get 4 lugs to mount. Most HS that come with the 4 lugs are wide enough to reach.

It'd make for a definite 'mod'.

Why not try it? It sounds like an interesting project. A while after the glass slugged processors came to market, one HSF company, maybe it was GlobalWin, made the first assymetric SK7 clip. The assymetric clip concentrates the pressure of the HSF on to the glass slug. Symetric clips put pressure on the center of the HS, which was right for the larger processors that came in a nickle-copper "can," such as PPGA Celerons.

The old fashioned SK7 clips just don't work right on the little glass slugs. The HSF could wind up tilted on top of the CPU, worse they could break the fragile silicon slugs.

Getting the center of downward pressure of the HS away from the center point and to the side might be a real challenge while using a home rolled fastening system!
