Intel heatsink

Hello,I recently got a recent replacement motherboard. The original MoBo had the heat-sink and fan fastened by spring-loaded screws. The new Asus P5QL-CM. Its manual says fixing the heatsink with clip fasteners. Can this be interchanged, and can I use the screws on the new motherboard.

  1. if you go to hard with screwdriver bye bye new board,could break
  2. No, I dont think you can use screws with a spring-clip design.

    Screws are a bad idea anyway, to much pressure and your mobo could crack.
    A spring-clips are easier to deal with.
