H80i Noobish Installation Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have the H80i currently installed in my rig, and this is going to sound really noobish, but when i was installing it for an amd socket the manual does not state how tight the thumbscrews need to be, so i am just wondering if i tighten them as tight as they go or what?
thanks

Hand tight should be fine. If you want you can use a screwdriver to tighten them a little more, but don't go crazy. smile.gif

ok thank you smile.gif
I did them hand tight at first and i was getting idle temps of about 45C, and just a small bit of adjustment with a screwdriver it dropped by about 10C!
Could you also recommend some good thermal paste as well? ive found a good price for some arctic MX-4

Good choice, MX-4 is one of the best. But I wouldn't bother replacing what comes on the H80i until you need to reseat it.
