Corsair H100 Installation

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Anyone know how tight I am supposed to torque down the screws on this cooler on AMD? I mean I have the brackets bending under the pressure and I can still keep going. Anyone have any experience?

If the bracket is bending you've gone too far!!! tongue.gif

It should be snug but not too tight, you don't want your motherboard to start bending.

agree with Christopher mate, sounds a bit too tight. don't go damaging that rad or you might be in a bit of trouble.

You havent stripped the thread on the screw, have you?

I checked and the screws aren't stripped. The bending bracket I was referring to is the one on the cooler, not the bracket on the motherboard.

Yes I know but if you put too much pressure between the bracket and the block your motherboard (which is inbetween them) will start to bend.

The bracket should not bend, just do a light tug and twist test to see if the heatsink moves, if it doesn't you should be good to go.

I'm not sure about the AMD mount but on the Intel mount, it didn't take much torque at all to get the screws to bottom out against the risers
