Hello..After cleaning the fan and heatsink my problems started.. When I put the plastic pins back in the MB\'s 4 holes, it turns out that they aren\'t long enough so that all 4 can be fastend at the same time. when i pin it in on one side it has an angel from the cpu!! If I try pushing it down on the opposite side it will losen on the first side and so on.. This resulting in temperatures getting as high as 100*C when gaming.. Whats the proper way of mounting the fan and heatsink? Thx Rudi
I have a q9550 as well, and I was unable to mount the stock fan. I hear problems from everyone attempting this, and the solution is to just get another cooler. You'll want one anyway to overclock that beast. I have mine running at 3.91 Ghz, and it's going to last me years.
