Picture? That might help us understand the problem.

Hello hohohee,

If you can not take a picture of your motherboard, cpu, and heatsink & fan (hsf)
Please give us the brands and models of the motherboard and heatsink.

Be more specific about what screws that cannot be tightened.
For example, the screws that hold the heatsink mounting frame on to the motherboard.
Are there screws that mount the cpu socket to your motherboard?
Were there 2 or 4 screws with springs holding your heatsink on to the motherboard?

Your explanation is mostly nonsensical, so the only way we can help you is if you either provide a picture of the situation, or you make an effort to actually use correct grammar and properly describe the situation so we can understand exactly what is going on.

He's talking about this:



There are 2 pieces.. the top and bottom + 4 screws.

Ah, I see. The plastic mounting bracket should not have been removed in the first place. The metal bracket is what holds the heatsink onto the plastic piece.

Just actually looked at this thread cause I've seen it for the past couple days and it keeps getting posted in, but never really was interested enough to look. I can't believe OP has like 300 posts on this site but has never put in his own cpu!! Very out of the ordinary! Especially since he sounds asian lol! I thought they were all techies

He said the screw are not long enough.. I guess it's the nut at the back of the motherboard that fall, it's why he can't reach themm


@ OP Remove the motherboard to screw the plate
