You may also want to consider the bolt-thru kit as some people have issues getting the pushpin mounting design to work properly:
Xigmatek ACK-I7751 Crossbow Mounting Kit for 3 Piece Heat Pipe for HDT-S963 HDT-S1283 RS-S1283 - DirectCanada
Both currently in stock at DC.
You know what, that looks prime. I will go with this baby and the mounting kit ( I read reviews on newegg.com, and most mentioned how bad the pushpins were). I added arctic silver 5 high density compound to the list, and my total is running about $437 before something like a 5% tax. So, Im looking at around $460.
Anything anybody forgot to mention or wanted to add, please do! :rtfm:
Thank you for your help guys.
