Thermalright si-128

Hi

I've fitted a Thermalright si-128 to my AM2 board with the supplied retention clip.

Trouble is its such a pain to fit, locking the arm in place that the heatsink spins around while your doing it.

Also when finally secured the heatsink will still spin without much effort.

As a result when I removed the heatsink it had worn a small circle into the cpu where no thermal paste was.

On the Thermalright website theres a much better looking bolt down fitting but I can't find it anywhere to buy.

Just wondered if anyone else has one fitted to AM2 board and what they think of the fixings?

  1. Hi, yeah I looked at the bolt through kit but it doesn't say that it supports the SI-128?

    I have the Thermalright retention bracket and this fiddly bracket.

    What I need is this, but can't find it anywhere?

    See step 7,8,9,10.

    Thanks.
  2. None of them list SI-128 support but it might be worth a try.

  4. Nice :sol: I've sent them a message.

    They were very helpful, some of the new brackets fit the SI-128 even though support is not listed.

    Thanks
