Putting together my new i5-2500K/P8P67 Deluxe System: Help! - Page 3

Follow the same as the 1156, since your on 1155, it's the same. It might be a bit tricky and you will probably need to magically grow a third hand, but with perseverance and concentration, you'll do just fine wink.gif

Your motherboard is 1155. I'm not familiar with that socket so I'm not sure if 1155 &1156 heatsinks are interchangeable.

1156=1155 bascially for installing heatsinks.

I was a bit worried when my adapter bracker for my Dark Knight came in and it didn't say, anywhere on it, 1155. It did, however, say 1156, and those are the instructions that I followed to install it on my new 1155 socket

The backplate (adapter) was very tricky to line up inside the case, but with help from my son, we were able to utilize the hole in the mobo tray and get 'er dun

EDIT: I just lifted it up, looked through the motherboard holes and eyed the right screw with one eye...then I eyed the hole & screw on the left of it...and put it right down. A little struggle and I lifted it back up, and then it went down...all by myself.

OK! Went with 1156 and brackets went on with no problem; though it'd be harder. w00t!

I need suggestions on which way I am to put the fan on. I have GSkill Sniper 1.5v Ram. The Heat-Spreaders on them are really small (they are sexy ram, indeed ) so clearance shouldn't be a problem. I Googled some pictures to show the two setups...

Here are the first two in front of the ram.




Here are the second two away from the ram.



EDIT: If second picture right above doesn't come up, just click on icon and open image in new tab.

Tell me, which one is the best for performance? This is a gaming PC so the cooler everything is the better. Thanks!

I think having it going over the RAM is the best way to place it.

The fan direction should be going towards the rear of the case, so they should be placed in the same direction as the pictures you have posted, and the best way is to put them like on the first picture, since pushing air is always more effective than pulling.

Your problem is the lever. The CPU should be fine, but when you pull down the lever you gotta kind of fiddle with it into the right position before you can push it down. I don't know how to explain it in words, this can literally only be shown with a video.

Thanks, but I did it. Yay me!


Anyway, I called it a night last night and put the mb back in it's bag and back in the box.

I'm gonna put the ram and fan on now but I have a few questions...

1. The GSkill Sniper ram. I'm putting it in the blue slots. When I push down...it won't go down all the way and the snaps won't clip in. I've put ram in before and it was easier than this; just would go in and the ledges would shut. I tried it on the black slots and same thing. I don't wanna hurt it...I know the bottom of the ram is aligned correctly with the slots. Do I just push down really hard?

2. I was just watching this video and saw the way this guy spreads on the thermal paste. Am I to understand that this doesn't have any benefit over just leaving the dot in the middle of the CPU? Go to 4:45.


3. The video above at 5:30. The SA has a clamp on it for how tight you wanna make it. How tight should I twist it?

Thanks.
