    Default P35-DQ6 / Intel Box Fan Problem

    Hi all,

    I'm building a new system with a P35-DQ6 and an Intel E6750, and I've run into an issue.

    I don't really overclock, so I'm using the stock box fan that came with the processor. I have the processor seated in the socket (made sure!) and have the hold down bracket latched.

    The problem is that the fan mounting posts will not engage the motherboard properly. The metal flanges that hold the plastic pins seem too high up to allow full insertion, and as a result, the fan is will not mount properly.

    If I take the processor out, the fan mounts will engage properly. I've looked pretty closely, and I don't see an interference issue with the hold down bar or mount, but the processor is simply too tall, resulting in the fan sitting too high.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks an bunch!

    Hi
    I am sorry but I guess there are some trouble of your way to setup the cooler.

    Could you please sent me a mail with the picture of how you setup the cooler? (janus.yeh@gigabyte.com.tw)

    I will try to find out what the problem is.

    Thank you

    Okay, after 30 hours testing, I solved the problem. With a little bit 'bowing' the motherborad , the fan fits now... But it was hard to press the pins in the MB... so i think, that's not normal...
