    I am considering getting a Tuniq120 tower cooler, or maybe the Thermaltake equivalent.

    My question is, as these are rather massive coolers, would it be possible to mount them to my motherboard tray, rather than using the plain "X" bracket that's included?

    I'd be leary of the X bracket providing enough distribution of the load, especially in my tower case....

    Perhaps putting some acrylic, or lexan between the tray and the motherboard, with mounting screws going through into the motherboard tray?

    Has anyone done something like this?

    How hard is it?

    you could do that without problems. Just remember to keep clear of resistors on the backside, and you should be fine.
