When I re-do mine tonight, I'm going to try that method... with one twist: I'm going to ask my wife to sit under the table and press up on the bracket.

For the record, any install that requires me to ask my wife for help is a fail... Bryan, please re-design the bracket! lol wink.gif

Agreed. It gets easier the more times you do it as well. The last time I actually lined it up best I could and them thumb screwed one side until I could feel it catch. Definitively a learning curve to it.

It shouldn't be that way, though. My $25 CM212 had an amazing metal mounting system, so why does my $140 WC kit have a lousy piece of plastic that won't stay in place?

It's a valid complaint, and something that they could easily address in Rev2.

So my core temp goes up to 53 C @ 1.375v 4.5 GHz and socket goes up to 68 C with my FX 8150 cooled by a H220? Is this good or bad? It was only ONE run on normal IBT

I would say those temps look very good!

It's also easier because the back plate nuts have been locked into their proper position from the first mounting. I'm only seeing a 4-5c difference from my old Hyper 612 PWM, so I may do a fresh mount and see if that helps.

I am not so sure about that, because you should remember that this is AMD, but im not sure what this thing is capable of.. Im just a bit worried, because many people go up to 1.6 volts and 5 GHz on water, stable. And their temps don't go over 61 C o.O

I use painters tape when I install a new CPU water block as well. It works wonders for this kind of application.
