Help Installing Cooler Master Hyper 212+
 
How in the world do you install it? I've been struggling for an hour! I'm following the user manual and http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...-review-6.html too but ugh.

Make sure you put some TIM in the grooves of the base. If you do the normal 'pea sized amount' much of the TIM ends up in the grooves and you don't get a spread.

I put some TIM on my finger (my finger was inside a plastic bag making it a kind of glove) and put some in the grooves.

Other folks have put small lines of TIM on the base/heatpipes, and others put some TIM on the CPU and spread it with a credit card.

Also;
1. Backplate on first. There are some screws taht allow you to mount it.
2. There is a thumb-screw in the middle of the plate, under the fins. Turn it to tighten the base to the cpu.

That's what I used... but it didn't help.

Anyways, I finally got it >.> Took a while.

I put 3 lines of AS5 in the middle of the HDT where the aluminimum stuff is. I think that's enough. That's how I installed the Vendetta 2.

Haha...funny how i forgot to do that in one of my earlier installs. Thankfully I swaped the cpu within a week and noticed.
