Don't be too scared! It is just a bunch of connectors and screws after all smile.gif

The hardest part honestly is the wire management. I can migrate a system to a new case in 10-15 minutes but if you want Organization add another 40min - 3 hours tongue.gif

I love it...

^^^ TRUE ^^^

Because of the size of your heat sink, you COULD break something worse case, and it will be harder to access scews to screw your MOBO onto your case. Your heatsink is blocking some (1 for sure in the middle) , your going miss some and not have your mobo mounted properly.

Hmm thank you for your inputs.

 

I might grab my balls and just dismount the CPU cooler..

 

Questions though

 

1-) When i dismout the CPU cooler will the CPU just come out? will i need to apply thermal paste?

 

2-) below is a picture of my rig from the other side

DO i unscrew the screws that are located here in this side where the CPU is? Is that all I have to do to take the CPU cooler off?

 

or are those screws not related to the cooler?

Those are releated to the cooler, it's the backplate that attaches to your coolers brackets. You shouldn't have to mess with that. Check your manual, it's very easy to remove. I'll check online and see if it's the same as mine and get back to you. Just rememebr it's very easy to do, after your done you will have to reapply the thermal greese. And no worries mate, we all had to do it and at least you have an Intel so you don't have to worry bending CPU pins like with AMD.

Hey Bravo... I actually got someone to help me out tomorrow, he will teach me how to apply thermal paste, how to do motherboard connections and will help me build the case. It will be a great experience for me. In return i am giving him my Haf 922 case so its a win win situation for everyone.rolleyes.gif

 

Tomorrow this thread will have lots of pictures so everyone is welcome to comment or give some feedback.

Sounds like a good deal for your friend.
After you remove the Heatsink you will see the CPU is locked into the socket with metal bracket and locking arm. No worries about pulling the CPU out of the socket when you remove the Cooler smile.gif
Sometimes the cooler sticks a little but you just have to gently twist the cooler slightly to release the grip.

Yeah he is in college and he said that he always wanted to get that Haf 922 red case so he will probably be the happiest in this deal.

 

Good to know that the CPU is locked but i guess after removing the CPU cooler we still have to re apply thermal paste right? Of course we will first clean the older thermal paste. he knows these stuff but I am just asking out of curiousity :)

 

Tomorrow cant come sooner. I will also change my motherboard but that has to wait until mid summer.

Yes you need to clean the old paste. Easiest method is to use Isopropyl alcohol at least ~%87. I like to use %99, it just dries really fast, almost instantly. Find it cheap in Drug stores like CVS.
Dab a paper towel or towel in the alcohol and just rub the TIM off till it is clean. You might not even need to take the CPU out of the motherboard.

Do the same for the Cooler.

Thanks for the tip. I will grab some thermal paste tomorrow and might also get that alcohol. I got Smirnoff Apple on the fridge.
