Are you talking about the apogee gt stock heatsink? If so, then that heatsink only applies to intel cpus... If you're not talking about the stock heatsink...then I'm lost

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:
GAH! i don't remember getting all those bolts and springs I think they mis-packed my package...

All you need are 4 bolts coming up through your back-plate and mobo..

The you put your block on those, then a nylon washer, then a spring, then another nylon washer, then your nuts on top of that...

Not very good pic's, but maybe it will give you an idea,

They got cheap with you ...Your going to need 4 nuts or thumb nuts...Are those bolts long enough to go through the back-plate and mobo then on up through your block mounts? If not go to the hardware store and get some that are long enough, they should be 6-32, but take one with you so you can make sure of the size...I like mine long, 3"+...Grab a few washers to....

Or if you don't mind waiting e-mail them here and tell them they cheaped out on your mounting hardware, they are good about sending things like that..Swiftech..

When you were talking about how you mounted your stinger and you talked about the springs... were those completely necessary?

Your better off using springs, you can hard mount them with-out, but your first block mounts I'd use springs...Just bottom them out if you want to, some mobo's like a hard mount and some seem to do a little better with less pressure...I just tighten it down till I can barely move the block from side to side a little.....

Why are your bolts to short to go all the way through all of it?

I use Stinger CPU blocks...

My bolts are a little small, but they'll manage. The only thing I'm troubled with is how I'm going to get more nuts and some nylon washers...
EDIT: Sorry about the block mixup...

HaHa...NP........You don't have to use nylon washers, you can use flat steel ones to, if you bolts are a little short anyway I would use steel ones since they are thinner...Any hardware store should have what you need...
