In comparison to the stock one its massive, i just took a closer look at ir and it is sitting linda like it is top heavy, i mite need to tighten the top screws up a notch "this is gonna be aggravating:swearing:" hardly no space to do so,
I also kinda wondered why it didnt come with a small temp wrench for tightening the heatsink bolts down my tool box doesnt have such a tiny wrench.

yeah those small nuts are a pain, i replaced the stock screws with 6-32# thread 1-1/2 inch screws from home depot and some wingnuts, which made it a lot better.

Yes i did follow the instructions, it is was my first time removing a heat sink off a motherboard "I am still in training" and it wasnt that hard the second time around, today i picked up some arctic silver 5 and did the whole scenario again and did it in half the time, that arctic 5 paste is awesome its lowered my temp 3c awesome stuff.

Thanks for all the info on this web site once again i done it the proper way.
Thank You overclockers.

Theyre great coolers but they are pretty hard to install. I had to get some needle nose plyers to tighten the nuts on my Tower 112, which uses the same mounting system.
