This thread may be of interest to you if you'd like to mount the A50 at 90 degrees...

I have to agree that it's stupid that AMD mounting solutions aren't given more thought. Either cooling companies should give this more consideration, or AMD should swap to a square mounting config, instead of their traditional rectangle.
