AC Freezer Question Please Help

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, I got my AC Freezer Pro about 1 week ago, and when I install it on my Foxconn C51XEM2AA n590 SLI Board, the lever can't be push all the way down. I tried to use more force, but the bracket on the other side pops back out. So now the lever is half way up, but it is able to say on the cpu pretty tight. So I was wondering if there's anything I did wrong? Also, the cpu temp is idle at about 35 degrees when I read it in bios, however, if I go in to windows, according to speedfan and everest, my cpu temp is always idle at 52, and about 54 at Load, and I have no idea why that is. Could it be that windows is not reading my temp correctly? Thanks in advance for the help.

The bracket is tricky to clip on for the first time, but seeing as there is only one prong it shouldn't reallt be a problem,

First clip on the side of the retaining clip that is solid then use the hinged side as a lever to get the clip on the k8 retaining bracket

Make sure the clip(red arrow) is properly seated on the studs(green) on the base of the heatsink:



I had this problem once and that was the solution.

so hey, you don't have to change the backplate for the freezer 64?

Nope, it clips on just like a stock 939 HSF.

Sweet. I'm building a new system and I already put the mobo in.

If the freezer 64 is as good as the intel freezer, this is a quality cooler.
