I wouldn't fool around with the possible life of your CPU, purchase the correct mounts. Also, for 10 bucks, test the cooling system to make sure the pump works correctly, the system doesn't leak, and the CPU mating/heat transfer surface is flat and smooth.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
This site is about helping people, lets keep it that way.

$10 or not, what's the point of liquid cooling your CPU? If you plan on overclocking the 5000+, you should get the right RAM 1st.

OK, man. Apparently you know more than I do. I've only been in the PC building & repair busness for about 17 yrs. I regret to inform you that you do NOT have the right RAM. You have DDR2-667, correct? You're already taking a performance hit. You should have DDR2-800. Liquid cooling is expensive (usually), requires maintenance & still needs a fan for cooling, so what will you have gained? Especially if you have to do a "ghetto installation"? Get the right RAM & overclock with air cooling like the majority of others do. But unless your 5000+ is the Black Edition, I don't expect you'll see any huge gains.
