Default Cooler CPU Scythe Shuriken rev. B AM4 Install

Hello, I`ve just bought this cpu cooler and I tried to install it on am4 socket. All worked fine, I managed to hook the clip into retention bracket(both side) but I can`t secure the heatsink/ lock the clip. The pressure is too hight, it fells like it would damage the motherboard. Because of that, I think that this cooler isn`t compatible with AM4 socket. If i try to lock the clips the pressure is too hight and if i let them not secured, the pressure isn`t hight enough so the cooler will fall. Can you, please, help me with this situation?

Hi Flavius890

You do not need to worry about damaging the motherboard. The backplate of the socket protects the motherboard from bending. Shurikens do not produce very high contact pressure. There are many Shurikens installed on AM4 sockets, no damage reported.

So.. are you saying that is okay trying to lock the cooler`s clips after I hooked them on the motherboard AM4 bracket and that this action will not damage the motherboard?

yes of course, it is ok to lock the clips, do not worry. It may be that the clips are hard to lock, but the pressure is not too high and not dangerous for motherboard.
