The Xigmatek Loki is a better cooler than the Cooler Master TX-3, fwiw.

Personally I've always felt the extra time to install a bolted mounting bracket is worth it. Less vibration, which means less noise. And solid metal screws/bolts will usually leave the heatsink to outlast everything else in your build: Leaving re-usage as an option if you ever rebuild.

Some push-pin designs are SO hard to twist-lock or unlock, due to the proximity to the heatsink and/or surrounding components, that I end up stripping skin off my knuckles or need to use pliers or something to get hold of the bloody tools-free "handy" gripless, ridiculous black plastic tab thing...

One of the mounts on my Xigmatek S1283 was almost no clearance to access, if I had child hands it'd be much easier.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:
