Installing the heatsink

Modern processors emit a lot of heat, a heatsink is provided in the packaging.  Installation is simple.

Installing The Heatsink

          Place the heatsink on the chip itself, making sure that the 4 retention mechanisms are firmly in place with the motherboard's clip.

Press down firmly on the 2 grey clips to make sure the heatsink is fastened securely to the motherboard.  Apply little force if neccessary.

Connect the heatsink's fan connector to the motherboard fan connector, which is labeled as CPUFAN_1 on the board.
