This is my first time building a computer myself. I'm trying to mount a scythe infinity to an asus p5wdh. The mobo is mounted to my case's removable tray.
It's socket 775 obviously, so I lign up the holes and try to push the clip/pin thingys through and they don't want to go without waaay too much force. I'm scared of breaking my mobo if I push any harder...and the holes are definitely ligned up. At best, I get one clip in all the way, then try to get the clip at the opposite corner in and the first clip just pops right out, or as I was saying before I get scared to push any harder.
You guys got any tips or anything? This has been a real PITA for me. I got a nice *** c2d system sitting in my living room right now......in pieces.
