Hello

I just recieved the cooler today. One problem is that it didn't come with a backplate and the instructions seem to refer to having an amd stock backplate. Is there anyone who owns this cooler who has an idea on what to do? I have the mounting clips and all the screws but I can't decipher the instructions. Will I have to buy an amd stock backplate or is this what the mounting clips are for? Although they look nothing like a backplate.

Thanks

Hello hitman1531;

Looks like the standard AMD clip mount.
Instructions must be referring to the already mounted parts on the motherboard.

This is no backing plate in the AC Freezer A30 accessory pack.


Arctic Cooling Freezer A30 Heatsink Review @ FrostyTech doesn't mention and isn't showing a backing plate.

The instructions were really poorly pictured. For future reference you have to remove the AMD stock mount, then insert the screws for the heatsink. Getting good temperatures now. Thanks for your help.
