The mounting kit is only ompatible with Intel sockets. Included in delivery you find a backplate. Once in position on the backside of the motherboard you can put it in place using four thumb screws and two massive aluminium bars. After you've done this place the cooler on the CPU and get the third aluminium bar. This one goes below the two cooling towers and above the base plate. Now you'll have to tighten the screws on the aluminium bar which takes quite a substantial amount of force. The advantage of this much pressure is increased heat conductivity.
As we can see on the pictures, taken on a ASUS board with the Prolimatech Megahalems Super Mega mounted, the first DIMM slot is still usable and you can even fit on it Kingston HyperX modules, which are well known for their huge heatspreaders. There even is plenty of space to install a second fan on the backside of the cooler.
