Oh it was fun alright. When I would press 1 pin down, the other one would pop back up. After much frustration I just pushed both pins down at the same time not caring if I cracked the motherboard. After finally getting the heatsink on and the mobo into the case, I realized I couldnt screw in the top screw and connect on of the power connectors without first removing my power supply.
All in all I was rewarded with a nice 31-32c temperature on bootup (from 47-48c) so Im extremely happy. Now how to figure out how to OC it, but thats another section of the forum
