Might work like it did for me.
Took many attempts to get the damn HSF seated right with this stuff.

I've put a Sythe Katana III on this machine and the Zalman is being retired to my dad's machine as we need a non pwm fan for his.
Having said that, even with the eneven spread that HS was still pulling down very good numbers ( even though this mobo is famous for inaccurate sensor readings.)
Nature always sides with the hidden flaw
