HELP! Installing XSPC CPU block!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! So I'm physically putting the block on right now.

So is this how its mounted:

bolt - nut - spring - plastic washer - through actual block - through mobo - metal washer - mounting bracket?

Im concerned about the washers. Does the mounting bracket need one? And does the spacer between the spring and cpu block need to be plastic or metal?

THANKYOU!

NEVER put a metal washer against your motherboard. The only spots designed for metal contact are the screw holes to mount the board.

YOU ARE A LEGEND!

I searched so hard for anything like that! So bolt - nut - spring - metal washer - plastic washer?
Just to be super safe!

Yep, just take a look at any of the manuals on the XSPC site.. I'm not sure what model you might have but most are similar: http://www.xs-pc.com/manual/raystorm-amd.pdf

If yours is the same style of hold down with two parts that can be tightened, put the long bolt part tightened all the way up and then run it to check your temps before you put extra pressure with the secondary. I have not needed to tighten the secondary nut at all on any of my raystorm blocks, and too much pressure is bad.
