i5-2500k installation

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So I just got my parts in and I'm building my first computer. Everything went fine until I had to install the heatsink. It seems that the pins that I need to turn are broken or something. I can't snap two of them in to place and when I rotate the pins 90 degrees, nothing changes.

God I hated the stock heatsink. Turn them all the way to the left and then when you clip it on turn them to the right if I remember correctly. Anywho go aftermarket, one of the biggest upgrades you can do

Even if I turn the clips all the way to the left, they don't seem to "unlock"

Maybe they are pushed in already, try pulling them out then seat it over the socket and gently push them into place till they clip.

The stupid stock pins are junk.. Usually have to wiggle them to get them to unlock and to lock them in it's best to have the motherboard out of the case with nothing else installed, that way you can put pressure on the other side of the board and confirm that the pins are installed right.

I dont think you need to turn anything to install if I remember correctly. Just push the pins down into the holes, the turning arrows should be for when you wanna remove the cooler.

The thing is, I can't push them down since they are locked. They don't fit.

Pull the black part of it UP and then you feel it slide into position. Then try and push it down on to the board. You should be able to see how it locks into place if you look really close at it.

Edit: I added a poorly "painted" image for you for clarification.

Thanks, I was able to install everything but now when I start up the PC it keeps on beeping then shuts off then turns on and beeps again. What could be the problem?

Edit : Oh and I can't see anything on screen.

Sounds like RAM is not seated correctly, you dont have the 4 pin 12v connector plugged in near the cpu... could be a video code... how do the beeps go? Example: 3 short 1 long?
