I realize that you are getting frustrated, but it does work with the AMD chip when installed properly (as I said before, I first used my 920 on a FX8150. And I think the instructions for this cooler could be a lot better, but even so, you should be able to knock this out. Just double check your work with the instructions and make sure you're looking at the AMD instructions and not the INTEL. Also, I think T Dubbed said he made a video. Perhaps you may want to check that out as well
Oh he did, but like most of the videos and the instructions I found are for Intel with little or no input for AMD, I had to remove my metal processor backplate completely where the videos, which are done using the Intel chips as a base, can give you the impression that Antec plate goes around it. According to the instructions it seems that that the plastic offsets are correct I just didn't attach them correctly.
