Asus Sabertooth P67 and Heatsinks - Page 2

post #11 of 46
In my experience this happens with a lot of heatsinks on boards... they rock back and forth on the vrms.

Well, if no one can tell me for sure I will probably fire it the way it is because I'm so excited to see if it's working but I have a little more to get done before I can fire it up, so if you can try this on your mobo in the meantime, please do so and let me know if it rocks back and forth.

I already told you i ain't touching that and i don't think you're suppose to move those things.

Alright, so can someone help me with this? My build is done and I'm about to start it. Will wait 5-10 minutes to see if anyone can do this for me.

Thanks in advance!

I started it up anyway, and it's working well. Changed overclock profile to XMP and that works. Tomorrow I'll be configuring BIOS and installing Win7. Hopefully everything will function properly without BSODs or any other problems.

Thanks to JedixJarf for his reply!

I tried rocking the sinks on my Sabertooth just now, and they don't budge on mine.

Thought i'd give it a try since I had my side panel off for a HDD install.

Hope this helps and your build goes well!

It's made to do that. Look closer at the picture and you will see two pins that are capped in plastic. Which means the heatsink is not hard anchored and probably has a thermal pad underneath. This might allow for expansion of the pad due to heat, and if it were hard anchored it might stress the motherboard.

Just my guess. My Sabertooth X58 was the same way. Not sure why the VRM heatsink would move but it does.

You even went underneath the Silver Arrow and tried moving the VRM sink? Cause I'll bet it will move.

Yes, I pulled the rear fan off the Silver arrow since I can barely even touch the edges of the sink when the rear fan is on.

I didn't exactly put much pressure on it when I did though, just enough to see if there was any play in it without risking unseating the black parts..

I have a brand new one, just store bought this weekend. I just took it out of the box and both heatsinks you reference are solid on mine. They are held in place by a spring action push pin. You could have dis-lodged one taking the armour off. It won't hurt anything at all to give the pins a push and see if you feel any or hear any click. Just to reinterate you really can't hurt anything even taking the heatsinks off altogether as many reveiwers do. I guess you could have one that's a little warped and not making good contact, you could see this pretty easily with the board in hand.
