    Apply the thermal paste or thermal whatever you've got according to the instructions then look at the pin layout on the bottom of the chip and there should be one corner with a pin missing, likewise on the board socket, lift the lever, line them up, put it in and lower the lever. The heatsink probably has one flexible side where you attach it and one fixed, apply the fixed side first and with a flathead screwdriver CAREFULLY, (it may be quite stiff) push downon the other side, make sure the screwdriver is secure otherwise it'll slip out and scratch the motherboard maybe buggering it up.

    Thats what i remember doing theres some more info maybe you should check that as well

    A word of caution. Do NOT use both thermal paste & a thermal pad together. It's either or not both.

    Now you'll have to get the system monitor prog and give us some temps.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    I absolutely hate installing heatsinks. They scare the crap out of me.
