I tried installing it with Prolimatech PK-1 and when I removed the heatsink, I saw some scratches on the base, is this normal? The scratches are like small dust particles in shape but definitely not dust.

Also, when installing it and adjusting the pressure knob do I need to do it after screwing in the heatsink on both sides or before?

The pressure knob is over rated, snug it down with out tons of effort. My cooler can be "wiggled". Watch out with the pressure knob, search google. there are people with all kinda of coolers that have that little knob that report mobo/cpu socket damage when over tight.

+1, the base is nickle plated copper, wich is very weak metal, it will scratch easy. Dont worry about it. if the scrath's are in the center of the "heat plate" dont worry. TIM will fill it in just fine. people report after using ICDiamond that there are small nicks on the cooler and CPU heat plate, wont hurt anything.

Don't worry about perfecting your cable management just yet...just get everything in there and check your temps. If they suck pull it off, check your TIM spread, clean and reapply then tighten down more. biggrin.gif This sounds like a big deal but more than likely you'll get it right the first time...just take your time. biggrin.gif

Yeah but of course I want to apply with the max pressure of 70 lbs. Did anybody here report any damaged socket yet after doing that?

Here's a pic of the scratches:

It's over exaggerated in the pic but you get the point, it has dust scratches on that area. Is that normal?

I've tried googling but people with LGA 1366 were usually the ones who had socket problem with 70 lbs. I can't find anything about the LGA 1155.

ICDiamond is another case here. It is known to produce nicks on all heatsinks base smile.gif

I've uninstalled and reinstalled mine a few times and have always tightened it down to 70lbs with no issues.

Would not worry about it. The metal you see on a cpu is just a copper/alluminum shell. Under it is the cpu chip which has tim on it to make a connection to the shell. So any scratches on the shell wont matter.

The scratches I'm referring to are in the base of the heatsink?

Thank you SO much. After I unmounted the Silver Arrow, I noticed that there was a bit of paste oozing out one of the sides. I definitely put too much.

Although it was a pain in the a** to put back altogether, there was a difference of 3-4 degrees biggrin.gif What sucks is one of the cores is still like 10 ish degrees hotter than my other 2, and one is just extremely cool (idles at 27, 37, 32, 17). Under prime95, I used to hit from a range of 55-68 but now it's 49, 59, 56, 47. Just so stoked...

Yep. It's important to get the amount of paste right. Less is best
post #699 of 3854
So with the SA, the correct way of installing the fan clips would be that the bottom portion of each fan clip is usually flushed with the bottom of the heatsink so that low-profile RAM can fit in? This makes the fan raised a little bit but not by the RAM but by the fan clips.
post #700 of 3854
How to know how much are screws tighten 70lbs for amd mount kit ? and also for intel ?
Edit: What u mean with fan clips ? set clips more down in both top and bottom
or u mean top one stuck ?
