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.
Yes I ano that. ok thx also what would be better to use, Thermalrite The Chill Factor/ Antec Formula
or some crap from Raido Shack.

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)
