Abstract

A clamp for a cold plate of a thermo-conduction circuit module (TCM) has a central member that fits over the cold plate on the side facing away from the TCM and has a pair of C-shaped elements that depend from the central member and engage grooves on the side of the TCM. The C-shaped elements are pivoted to the central member so that they can be swung open for assembly to avoid interference that could otherwise occur between the clamp and the cold water connections that project from the cold plate.
