A washer with a 3/8 opening can be used to increase the pressure

Look up "washer trick" or "penny trick"

I have this heat sink in the Nine Hundred case with the fan blowing
through the cooler and out the top. It's so close to the northbridge
that the CPU cooler sucks hot air from the northbridge cooler. It's
an E6750 @ 3.6ghz idles at 40-42, idle and and under heavy load it
stabilizes at 65. Ambient is 31.

....And I just discovered this combination is no longer stable so it's
not a recommendation.

I wouldn't say it's optimal but I'm using this heat sink in the Antec
Nine Hundred case with the fan blowing through the cooler and out the
top. It's very close to the northbridge, the CPU cooler sucks hot air
from the northbridge cooler before it gets to the cpu I have an
E6750 @ 3.6ghz idles at 40-42, idle and and under heavy load it
stabilizes at 65. Ambient is 31.
