H80 AM3 install loose


Recommended Posts

Hello all. I was installing my new H80 on my AM3 mobo when I came across an issue. The side "clips" attach to the mobo mounting bracket but the cooler does not get tightened down even when they are tightened as much as possible. I am not sure what else to do. I emailed tech support, but obviously I would like to resolve this as quickly as possible. Thanks for the help!

It appears one of the clips did not latch on properly and must be sitting at an angle to the motherboard clamp. The clips has to sit inside the wedge and must be parallel to the pump.

Option 2

If it is still loose,try the following.

Unscrew the motherboard clamp. Cut and paste small strip of cardboard where the H80 clamp will rest.
