    Installing a heatsink is a matter of simplicity. Here's a quick step by step that has worked for me through countless heatsink reviews. It assumes that you have already removed and cleaned the processor from the motherboard.


    - Making sure that the processor is clean, apply a thin, SMOOTH layer of a good thermal interface material (Arctic Silver is a good choice);

    - Install the processor into the Socket and engage the lever;

    - With the heatsink at a slight angle to the processor, set the back lug (away from the Socket lever pivot point) of the sink onto the Socket lug;

    - Rock the heatsink straight down onto the processor core making sure not to move it from side to side;

    - With the blade of a screwdriver, set the front clip of the heatsink onto the Socket lug.


    That's all there is to it. I have done a lot of testing on different heatsinks and this method has always worked for me. It ensures a solid fitting of the sink to the core and also minimizes the pressure needed to install the front clipping mechanism. This makes it unlikely in the extreme that you will do any damage to the tender processor core. :)

    A lot of the problems I have heard of with using this cooling system is people dont like to assemble it... People like the pre-assembled coolers so all they have to do is stick it on and plug it in.

    The installation and assembly is a simplemans task to say the least. While there is no 1-4 step process it is clearly illustrated for you. :)

    Just make sure and compare the power draw on the new fan to the maximum that can be handled by the little mini-rheobus.

    I was simply planning ahead :p
    I wonder would the new Y.S.Tech fans fit? have they released the cfm rating for them yet?

    I can't see any reason why those new Y.S.Tech 70mm fans wouldn't fit if need be though their cfm rating is around the mid 30's atm. :smokin:

    Not that I know and probably for the reason that 70mm fans have not been around long and there are not sufficent enough numbers of them. :smokin:
