Do i remove the stock black brackets around the cpu area and install the metal brackets that come with the v6gt fan? I read the instruction, but they aren't very clear to me.

here's what my board looks like6

I have an am3 socket. but i am confused on the instructions. After step 1 in the picture, where does the bracket in step 2 go or is that for an am2 bracket? because after i install the first one I have no idea where the bracket number two goes.....

here's the diagram.

thanks! i figured the first part out. i had to remove the fan to put the metal brackets in between.


So for the 2nd part i just remove the original mount from behind the motherboard and use provided one?
