Apogee gt installation problem...

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Sorry about starting so many threads recently, but some of this stuff is confusing
The guide that comes with the block doesn't make any sense to me... It says to put the screws through the apogee gt, then through some nylon spacers, then through the back plate, but it doesn't specify what's holding the screws there... Here's a pic of the manual.
EDIT: this if for AM2

If you mean the cpu baseplate, then there aren't any in mine... Are they supposed to be threaded?

On the back plate that goes behind the mobo, all you have to do it take the seal off the sticky backing and stick it to the mobo. There should be little nuts welded to the back that are a bit hard to see that are threaded that the screws go into

I do have a backplate, but it doesn't have any threads on it or anything... its literally just a plate with 4 holes and a square hole in the middle...

yeah once you remove the standard heatsink retention bracket, you will see the threaded holes in the stock backplate.

No, there isnt any way to thread the screws into the backplate. What you have to do is put the backplate on the back of the board. Then put the screws through the backplate, and through the motherboard (from the underside). Then place the the board on a flat surface so that the screws are sticking up at you. Then place a plastic washer on each of the screws, then thread nuts onto them. These nuts are only used to lock the screws in palce so they wont turn when you tighten down the final cap nuts. So there is basically a plastic washer protecting the board from the nut. Then place the cooler (with it's crome mouting plate) onto the 4 screws. Then place the plastic spacer (flat side down) ontop of the crome plate. Then place the springs, then another washer (flat side now facing up so that the spring fits between the 2 tapered ends of the plastic spacers). Finally, screw down the cap nuts.

I hope I explained it easily for you.

I dont know if you can see it very well, but here is my Apogee GT I used to have:

The holes should be threaded...If not just run your bolts through it with the heads on the back,you might need a little washer, then use your nuts on the top or block side...
