Default Zalman Cnps7000b Help!!!!!

I already have my motherboard screwed in and ready to go. I just bought that Zalman fan and it requires me to take out my board and put on this black mounting plate for the Heatsink to be on i have to put on this back plate??? What's the point of this thing?

I am not familiar with your heatsink, but my guess would be that it is similar to video card heat sinks.... That backing holds it onto the motherboard to make it more secure.

Un-mounting the motherboard is hardly anything compared to having to buy a new CPU because the heatsink wasn't properly mounted to it....

I would say take the time, and do the installation correctly according to the hardware specs.

Woh, I forget how many minutes does it take to remove a motherboard from a case? Is it 2 or 3? I've got that heatsink, the LED version, and if you're mounting it on a skt939 motherboard, then as far as I remember, it's essential to have the mounting plate on the back .

It doesn't take that long. A few minutes at most. Just don't rush.
