What is a Ziff?

I've read a couple reviews on coolers that mentioned removing the "ziff" on the motherboard when
installing the heatsink.
Unfortunately, there were no pictures, so I have no idea what a ziff is.

I've googled no avail.

My guess is the thing that locks the CPU in place...? Is that even removeable?

Any clues?

The guy was talking about a Ziff for the 1366 i7 socket...?

He was probably referring to the lock-down mechanism as the ZIF because he never fully got what ZIF was all about.
