Removing Freezer 13 pushpins

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently have the Freezer 13 CO from Arctic but I didn't see an uninstallation guide or manual. My question is how do you remove both the black and the beige push pins before you can get access to remove the mounting frame? I didn't see an uninstallation guide and I tried to remove the black push pin but it's very tight and firmly inserted.

From the pictures below, i assume you have to press both black parts inside the brown one, so they can "pop out".

You are correct and that's how I was able to get it out. It took quite a good amount of pinching and force to remove it from the beige colored push pins but in the end I was able to get it out. The beige colored push pins also required some removal from behind as well as they didn't want to remove easily either. Thankfully my Haf-X cutout was optimized for LGA1366 and it made it much easier.

I hope that this topic helps anyone looking for instructions on removing the bracket/push pins for the Freezer 13 and any similar models/series that use this kind of mount/bracket.
