Its quite a naff design, the more i think about it the less happy i am. I know it's quite cheap and all, and for the price (and now it's seated correctly) i don't think you can argue with the cooling.

It's really tricky on my board to push the feet in. All around the CPU are copper heat syncs, and the 4 feet on the bottom of the ninja are basically under the edge of the heatpipe. You don't stand a chance trying to fit this with the board inside the case (not that i tried). Also, because of the tightness getting the board and ninja back in to the case i had to take the optional fan off the top. So when the board and pipe were back in the case and screwed down, putting the fan on top then and trying to fix it with the mounting bracket put pressure on the pipe and loosened the feet again.

Id recommend people try and get the first version looking at peoples comments, even if its just for the miracle bracket to hold it down.

I have a Rev B Ninja and yes they use the plastic pushpins. Not push and twist though. You only twist them to release the heatsink. i.e. thin lines face outward, push down, job done. Twist them 90% and pull to release, reset to refit.

I have a Tuniq Tower on an Asus P5n-E sli, this was a difficult install and it has to be fitted out of the case. Difficulty envolves keeping the sink in place while trying to tighten the knurled screws 3 or 4 capacitors surrounding the cpu socket get levered as the heatsink is tightened into place it puts pressure on the caps pushing them out of the way, that said though the board seems fine and the temps are very good.

Well, i agree that is exactly how i thought they SHOULD work after reading the install guide - but mine definitely don't work like that. With mine i push them down, until i hear a click. The click is the black part of the pin going forward over an L shaped lip on the inner circle. Once they are pushed down and "clicked" in to place, all i have to do is pull the clip back up lightly and they release and click out. With mine, once they are pushed down - i twist to the right to lock the black part in to the top of the L so i cant pull them back.

The plastic parts look quite cheap, perhaps there are several variants?

Mayhaps there are. I struggled to get mine off the first time until I rotated the clips then read the install instructions very carefully and mine seem to function as per spec. i.e. if thin lines are outward and you click it down it won't come off on mine.
