There is a mark on the cpu and a mark on the mobo for where the first pin is...make sure u line those up and lock the cpu down in place there is a rocker arm.
Put thermal gel on the top of the processor b4 putting on the heatsink and fan.
And that will lock down in place with some sort of clip depending on which cpu and fan u get.
Ya dont push down hard and bendhe Cr@p outa your pins cause that is a nightmare tryin to fix those lil pins.
