as you can see it doesn't have the standoff & nothing to grab it! the metal ting in which the screw is screwed into is free!

Another way to fix this is to drill that b*tch outta there... but if you do this must be VERY CAREFUL and if you have not done that before then practice on an old case or something first

well, if you're still having issues, the screws use springs so they dont sit flush on the board, just use a dremil and carefully cut the screw head off, free the spring and lift out the heatsink. Then try to figure out the stuck screw. If you cant fix it, drill out the screw and threads, then use a small bolt and nut w/ nylon or paper washers to secure it. I would sell you my stock cooler since Im not using it, but Im contemplating changing my mobo and selling the chiv so I will need it. let us know what happens
post #4195 of 13131
count me on the list..

here's mine....




i sold my 5870 and replaced it with both 5770..


upgrading my cpu cooler soon and my case..

Oh that is a bummer dude. Can you stick something in that hole in the picture to try and stop it from spinning? Like some needle nose pliers or something just to get the screw to break free.

IDK what else to say, I feel your pain I would be very frustrated.

I used the black slots, I've tired the red I got the ram debug led.
post #4199 of 13131
I use 8 gigs(4x2gig) DDR3 XMS3 from corsair and never had a problem with the ram slots. Swapped in some Dominator DDR3 for a few days in slots 1,3 and had no problems with that either ><
