Many would assume such a heavy cooler would not possibly mount onto a socket A system with the use of a traditional clip, and they're partially right. Whilst the unit does not use mounting holes, the retention system which Scythe call "R.C.C.M. (Rigid Core Clamping Mechanism)" uses the existing socket lugs. Basically this requires you to hold the heatsink above your CPU, place the retention system over the socket's lugs, slowly lower the heatsink onto the cpu, holding the clips over the lugs.
