I bought a gigabyte G-Power II Pro two days ago, I also got the Core i7 kit with it, I tried all the possible ways to install it without success, I looked over gigabyte's site but the manual describes it only for LGA775 socket, and AMD AM2.
can you help me please? I have the core i7 920 and the Intel DX58SO MB.
I've seen the manuals on Gigabyte's site, all of them are for LGA775 and AMD AM2.
but in the product description they say it supports Intel Core i7.
I got the Core i7 installation kit with the Fan, but I'm confused on how to install it.
I tried to ask gigabyte's technical guys, but they are not responding, I'm not even getting an account activation e-mail from them.

You are in luck! Take the motherboard out of the case, use the appropriate brackets and backplate, and start the installation per the manual.
I am assuming that you have done cooler installations in the past.
