E6600 heatsink installation question
Hello all, when doing a new build with the new C2D's, I see it's recomended you install the 4 prongs of the heat sink once the motherboard is mounted inside the case. Wouldn't this bend or flex the motherboard? I installed one for a friend and I did it outside of the case and just raised the motherboard up slightly when I pushed each pin into lock position. Is it easier once the motherboard is installed? I'll be building another and just want to know the best way to put it in.
It also seemed better outside the case so I could look underneath and make sure it was completely locked in.
