Hi,

I have just completed my first new build, I just have a quick question regarding the AMD heatsink.

When fitting the heatsink does it matter which way it is installed?

I have attached the heatsink to the notches on the brackets and secured it by pushing down on the clip, however as it is my first new build I just presumed that you could fit the clip to either of the notches. Is this the case or should it only be installed in one specific way?

Help will be much appreciated.

Nope, either way is fine... Whichever is easier to work on for you is better...
