I believe the Zigmatek unit is more of a perfect fit. Its made for the Xigmatek version of the Vendetta.

Incorrect.

Purchasing the Thermalright one is the best.

You remove the stock pins off the Vendetta then use the screws and backplate with the stock V2 bracket.

Hey enaberif im guessing you have experience installing it, a few questions. Is it hard to screw it in because of the size of the heat sink? Also would i see any difference if i used that instead of the pushpins (one of my pushpins are broken because i kind of pushed it too hard, those things are fustrating..)

The screws can be a bit difficult to screw in but it is manageable.

And if your pushpins are broken then don't use it at all.

Sorry, still using stock cooling, but what's wrong with the push pins?

Doesn't provide a very good secure and good contact between cpu and heatsink.
