Asus M5A99FX Pro with CM Hyper TX3 problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I having problems setting this heatsink. The included AMD mounting for it seems flimsy to me. I think that it can be forced on but then the thermal paste will go everywhere and I don't want to risk damaging something. Any ideas or an alternative HS?

you shouldnt have to worry about the thermal paste going everywhere... if it does, you put way too much on.

It's only a small amount of paste but after the heatsink finally gets placed trying to align it right it ends up being unevenly spread. I can accept that but I'm more worried about physical damage to the cpu or socket trying to force it in place. Maybe CM didn't include the correct retention plate. It says AM3+ on the box however in the instructions it shows a different looking plate.
