Default Help! Having trouble installing stock HSF i5 750 - on mobo..

Hi guys,

For some reason I can't get the stock cooler on the motherboard =/ i know how its done but the pins aren't going all the way through the motherboard.. I've got a MSI P55 GD65.. trying to install i5 750.. Im not a noob, mostly used to installing AMD cpu's.. anyway what should I do?? I've unlocked the four pins.. I try pushing in and it just won't go through the holes =/

hope someone can help..

Make sure the pins are squeezed together and in the proper position to go through the holes. Also make sure that they are in the unlocked position. Then just align all the pins with the holes and push down on sets of opposing corners until it's in.

If the pins are getting bent, then that means they're not in the holes. you must make sure that the black plastic tabs are oriented correctly (unlocked) or this type of problem will happen. Pay close attention to the installation diagrams that came with the cpu. The black tabs rotate 90 degrees. When unlocked, the black tabs should be in the "up" position. Pictures are worth a thousand words. Here's a detailed guide with lots of pics. Let me know how you make out.

I think the Intel push pin system is stupid. The Hyper 212 Plus system is BRILLIANT. Why doesn't Intel have a backplate built in?

Since you got your heatsink installed, how's the build coming along?

very easy to use just make sure that the pin head is through the hole first i use a screw driver to push the pin down through the hole then push the head of the pin in place and click that's why they use is because it's cheap and simple to make ( i do a lot of these intel's big now )

Push the pin in X not in order it will be much more easy and will prevent from bending the mobo during the HSF install. Most of the time the issue come from here you can't get the last pin on so pushing in X fix it. Try to post pic to show us how you do this way we can tell you the right thing.

Ask for more.

The push pins are soooo much easier when you have a removable motherboard tray. Screw the board down, then mount the heatsink. Nothing on the backside to stop the pins from coming through then.
