Well that was an excellent observation but that is why he commented to give the bolts 1mm of play. I built one and could only get 2 of the bolts in but it is mounted very firmly and the other bolts are acting like posts. Overall my cooling project lowered my load temps by 10C so far;

Air Cooling Project: 101. Lowered CPU load by 9-10C

Yes the cable management sucks but the rest is going fine.
