I am installing an i7 socket 1366 on an EVGA mobo and I am trying to find out if there is a way to secure the bracket for the Intel heatsink to the underside of the mobo so I can install the mobo into the case witoud the heavy heaatsink. the Antec case does not have a hole in the mobo tray so you can access it from beoow the mobo tray. It would be easier to install the mobo without the heatsink on it. Can you help?

Go ahead and put the heatsink on before installing the MB. That's the best way....

Well, it might look easier in the first place, but it isn't. Even if there is a hole in the case, the heavy cooler is difficult to install. Just install the cooler outside and use i as a handle for the mobo.
