They were supposed to send us one, but they never did and I haven't heard anything back from them about it.

The thickness of the fill cap prevents the fan cover from sitting level, could mod the cover with very little effort though, would only need to shave a MM or so off the plastic honeycomb.

If you can keep the block pretty much centered during this process you should be OK. A little smearing isn't going to hurt anything as long as the paste doesn't all end up on one side. It's going smear a little when it spreads anyway.

Thank you everyone.

If I were you I would just reapply my thermal paste. There is a possibility that it may have slid off to one particular side and therefore you won't get the proper contact that you need to cool your chip.
Have you guys considered designing and including a more secure rear bracket? I honestly don't think it's possible to install the H220 block WITHOUT it sliding all over the damn place -- since you essentially have to install it with one hand while doing some contortionist magic to reach around the back of the motherboard with the other hand to hold the bracket in place. Those tiny little stickers on the plastic bracket don't hold it in place AT ALL when you push down with the mounting screws from the front side.

Honestly, besides my seemingly poor thermal performance -- which I think is a result of the mounting issues -- that's my only complaint so far. I have no idea how I'm going to re-install this thing without seriously messing up the TIM every time...

The retaining bracket is really my only complaint as well. Once I realized how it mounted I gave up on the idea of using the adhesive pads, it pretty much requires three hands to keep pressure on the block, line up the back plate and engage the screws. It might be less of an issue in cases with more room between the radiator and the CPU socket.

what i do is have a folded cloth or something soft under the mobo to hold the bracket in place. Painters tape would probably work even better.

or slide the case off the table enough to get a hand on the underside. It's easier if you lay the case down instead of doing it upright.

Bending the fins under those screws will have no effect on the cooling performance, and it will not cause the radiator to leak. I have been in the radiator business for 25 years!thumb.gif

I have pretty poor thermal performance. Im on AM3+. Any ideas? I don't know what is wrong honestly. Is there some weird rules with this? I just installed it. Should I wait for paste to cure or whats wrong?

EDIT: Not air bubbles btw

Well, it only moved around a little bit here and there, but only slightly. I never moved the block around by sliding it everywhere and I never lifted the block up. Even when it comes to installing a heat sink, they tend to slide a bit in every direction before you latch it down.
