    yes it does clip on. you see the clip on this heatsink?



    ok so you put on end of the clip (usually the bottom one which doesnt have a spot for teh screwdriver) on first then slide it in and then use a screw driver to clamp down teh other end and put it onto the socket clip.

    its pretty simple, have u got the stuff yet? the cpu will come with a manual with instructions on how to attach the heatsync.

    OK, thanks, yes but the manual says NOT to put pressure on the chip, which is impossible to do if you want to get it on right.

    I really appreciate you help.

    well they mean not to put it on an angle and give pressure, it has to be sitting straight. lots of pressure goes onto the socket because of those little round spacers they put in. the pressure is applied to them and they quish down to put pressure on the socket and bring the heatsync to core height.

    which is why i said to slide it on sorta, u gotta move it just mms above the cpu and get the first clip oin then push teh processor down flat and then u can do the clip.

    ya it&#39;s a bitch to install that

    dont listen to that dont put pressure on the chip shit, cuz it&#39;s bs.

    When I installed mine I had to use a flat-head screwdriver to bend the clip so wide and i had to press down so hard in order for the clip to snap in



    intel processors were much easier...

    Adam,

    Every heatsink will require different amounts of pressure to install.
    I have found the stock AMD sinks to be pretty painless ( yours doesn&#39;t appear to be one) and others to be scarily difficult.

    For this reason alone I think it&#39;s better to install the HSF with the mobo out of the case, laying flat on a surface you can exert some pressure ( if necessary) on.

    Yea it&#39;s a pain to place. And the green manual AMD supply has crap insructions anyway.
    I wasn't going to buy it in the first place, so me downloading it for free isn't losing them any money.

    Be sure that the heatsink is facing the right direction. There is a ridge on one edge that needs to match the base.



    Keep the heatsink flat on the CPU and then press downwards on the clip with a screwdriver until it clips on. Be careful not to let the screwdriver slip.

    The other instructions here I disagree with.

    But I agree with VB&#39;s instructions. With the added comment that I had to bend the clip outwards & down at the same time with a regular screw driver to get the clip to fit.

    Edit: And noway, nohow would I attempt this out of the case. I needed the stability of the mobo mounted in the case.
