It's pretty straightforward. Install the backplate, pick the brackets that fit your motherboard (LGA775 brackets), and screw them into the backplate, then mount the cooler using the bridge piece. It'll wiggle a bit, but that's normal.

Make sure you tighten each screw individually and evenly, in a criss-cross pattern.

you sound very unsure...i'd suggest you hit up your local pc store to do it, if you do it yourself make sure you use thermal paste.

Yeah, TIM is essential.
OCZ Freeze is nice, so are AC products like AS5 or MX-1 or MX-2 or something, there's not much of a difference, but OCZ Freeze is best.
It shouldn't be that hard. All you have to worry about is breaking things since the HS is pretty heavy, but it wont be a big deal when you get the backplate in and stuff.

Great way to encourage him. ''The only thing at stake is your family''



1- Install the backplate

2- Use the proper mounting thingy : the X one for Intel, the ugly big one for AMD

3- Apply thermal paste to CPU

4- Stick the TRUE with the mounting bracket on top on the CPU.

5- Screw it (in)

ah you have it easy all you need to do is use the crisscross plate in front and use the black back plate on back.I got a amd 790 fx board so no back plate just heat sink with screw holes on board so I have to use the big non moveable plate and what A ***** to get it inside the heat sink in that space around the bottom between heat pipes, there is a certain puzzle to it. the fan mounts I had a little bit of figuring to do . it is the very top little side hole and on the very bottom. where the wire it bends and goes straight across to other end it is that bend that holds the fan in they slip ever so slightly into the holes. the wire dosen't throuh the holes of fan . you may have to slide the fan back or forth a very little with out much force .them plastic strips are dampers the fan sit on to .screw them up you will have to make a new set because there is a echo viberating noise with out them . that sticky velcro stuff with glew on one side works really good i use the fluffy part and glew the same size strip on each side of heat sink . on my board it points up so i do have a antec 900 case with the big 200 fan on top so not a prob no fan there I could be heat getting repushed through heat sink being so close to the top of case. Want to try something creative put another fan on the other side of heat sink .make sure each fan is blowing in same direction prefer to a another fan suck air out of case. I seen another drop in case temps and cpu temps 26 - 22 case temp and 30 idel 45 load to 25 idel to 35 load that is 10c decrease and I am running a amd 9850 to me that a 15$ improvement.
