Thermaltake Heatsink Question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever installed this heatsink? How hard was it to do? I have never changed out my heatsink on my processor before, and I just want to know what I am getting into and what little things I might need that doesnt come with the package to finish it all with as little problems as possible.

Lol. Every time someone posts AS5, I always giggle because it looks like they're posting ASS.
