help needed supporting weight of zalman cooler

Threaded View

I have an ASUS A7N8X-E with a Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu cooler running a mobile  
barton XP 2400+ 35W

I want to get some additional support to hold up this weight in a tower  
case, as this cooler weighs close to 800g

has anyone experimented with drilling through the existing holes that  
surround the CPU socket and inserting something akin to long bolts that  
would be terminated at the outside of the case, so that the case would bear  
the weight of this wonderful cooler and not my poor asus mainboard?

any ideas appreciated!

Motherboards are mult-layer things, and you might end up drilling through
some traces and ruining them.
