Default Installing Core Contact Freezer on AM2+

Sunbeamtech Core Contact Freezer CPU Cooler Review | Futurelooks - Digital Lifestyle and Technology for the Masses

"It would appear that the attached mounting clip wasn’t quite a match for the length of the AM2 mounting bracket... What happened was when I went to press the clip down to secure the cooler, it was missing the little retention bracket hook by millimetres. This was compounded by the fact that the clip was pushing up against the fins of the cooler, not allowing it to make that extra stretch and clip down."

I'm running into the same problem described in that review (which I just found). The Core Contact simply doesn't reach both ends of the bracket at the same time. I know some of you have installed it on an AM2+ board before, so how did you do it?

FYI, I've basically entirely disassembled my system trying to get this thing to work. My mobo is entirely out.
