  1. There should be directions included. try searching google if instructions did not come with your HSF.
  2. If you bought retail it should have directions.

    <font color=red>It's impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious<font color=red>
  3. If you didn't buy retail CPU, then the mobo manual will have instructions in it. Really simple process, especially with the stock HSFs from AMD. When you start upgrading to huge HSFs like the Thermaltake XP-120 or the Zalman 7700, then you start getting into a little more difficult mounting procedure.

    What HSF are you using?

  4. o i haven;t brought anything, just realized it as i was browsing lol...
  5. Download the mobo manual from the board you want to buy and see if it has directions for installing the HSF. That or check the website of the HSF maker you are going to use (if not going with the stock AMD HSF).
