If your using pushpins, sometimes you have to apply quite a bit of force. Dont let it worry you. Check your tim's manufactures website for how to correctly apply it. Usually it is best to point your HSF so that the air is getting pushed towards the exhaust fans on your case.

Ah, I usually just tighten mine until they don't screw any further

I think I'll give it a go.
The thing is a monster... looks like it's going to tip my computer over
Can the motherboard really hold this beast with no added support?

Yes, since its using the backplate system. Just make sure you have all your mobo screws in your case.

One more question.
This HSF has a three-pin fan plug... the stock HSF has four pins.
Will this still work in the CPUfan socket?
Which way does it go in?

Yes it will work. There's usually a little indent in the fan connector, and a piece of plastic sticking up on the connector on the motherboard, to prevent hooking it up incorrectly.

Just make sure you have the piece of plastic, and the indent lined up. Very simple.

So... let me make sure I have the idea.

I put the plate that comes with the HSF right onto the back of the mobo... then put on the HSF and screw in (can't screw them fully one at a time or the others won't go in)... then that's it? I don't need anything else besides what's in the HSF kit? I hope it fits in the case and I can still have the side-fan in.

Basically yes. Take the mobo out, unless your case as the area of the mobo tray cut out at the back, and hold the backplate on, then screw each screw in like a half turn or so, then tighten them all once you have each screw in.

Depending on your case, you might have issues with putting the side on. I havent seen alot of people not be able to though, so I wouldnt worry to much.

I got the HSF in and was able to keep my side-fan

I'm running OCCT right now.
after 20mins max temps are (according to RealTemp)...
Core1: 58
Core2: 58
Core3: 56
Core4: 55

I'll let it run a while and see what happens.
So far this looks better.

Thanks again.
