TMW Posted December 2, 2006 Share Posted December 2, 2006 Hopefully someone can help me with my dilemma. I have an intel socket 775 custom build. I received the watercooler, and it was fantastic. Problem is, the motherboard died 20 minutes after turning it on. To return the motherboard, I had to detach the watercooler. I couldn't remove the water cooler without using pliers (and while I am thankful that the plastic clips are difficult to remove, it does make detachment difficult). The plastic clips got bent, and now while the watercooler will sit over the processor, it won't remain firmly pressed against the CPU. The computer runs at 48 degrees C idling, if I actually reach over and apply pressure to the waterblock, pushing it onto the CPU, it'll drop down to 35. So, does anyone have any suggestions on getting the waterblock to stay onto the CPU, or any way to obtain new plastic clips? Thanks for your help.
