Default Problems with the installation of the Ninja 3 Rev. B on Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H

Hello!

I have carefully read and followed the installation instructions (ftp://ftp.scythe-eu.com/Manuals/CPU-...ja-3-Rev_B.pdf) and watched the video for installation on the official homepage at the end of the site (Ninja 3 Rev. B: CPU Kühler, Lüfter, Lüftersteuerung, PC Netzteile von Scythe).

Although, I wanted to mount the heat sink on the mainboard and the screws are too short.

Did I make a mistake or why doesn't it work?

Here pictures from the situation:

Hello Anton,

you installed the Intel brackets wrong. You installed the brackets for the socket 2011. Please compare the direction with the picture.




And all should works fine.

Thank you very much for your help. This was the problem and now it works fine. I hadn't seen this little difference in the video.

How much space should I leave aprroximately between the intel brackets and the rubber on the foreside?

The Space between the rubber and the brackets aren't important, because the rubber should make easier the installation of the cooler - but it should a distance of ~ 3-4mm between both. (You can also install the cooler without rubbers, but this more difficult.)

But I think I shouldn't screw down the cooler completely to the mainboard, because there would be too much force/pressure then, woudln't it?

You can screw until the end of the screw thread. You can't screw the brackets to the motherboard (the thread is not long enough for this).
