hey guys so i spent 4 hours trying to install this cooler and its driving me insane
I run a gigabyte 890 mobo and installed the back plate fine, since i have a am3 processor its a different look but it works.
So, after placing the sink on the processor i put the rentition plate through the bottom and expand it to my need, only finding out that if i screw in one side the other side of the plate becomes lifted and only 2/4 screws are in at any given time.....Why does the other side lift up? Any help would be AWEsome :]

You might want to try securing screws in a cross-pattern which is usually recommended for most installations when heatsinks are involved.
Tighten one screw at the top till it catches cross over to the opposite bottom corner.
Count the full turns or visually check for the same height on all the screws.
Amd is not as critical as an Intel install which relies on cpu pressure for best results.
