Help! plastic fitting?!
I've been using a yasya for over a week now and have had some issues with it.
first to the admin; yasya fits fine on a Asus P6T deluxe v2!
second, i've installed the cooler as shown on the video on scythes website. however, one of the four pins that should help retain the cooler always jumps out a bit.
I'm just not sure howmuch this is effecting my cooling.
And why it wont fit like it should!
Are these plastics componants not made with the right tolorences?
Or am i using too much coolpaste? I put most of the coolpaste given by scythe so that my cpu was fully covered.
this is what i can give you; temperature tests showed that idle temperatures run from 30 to 34°C.
Stresstests by prime95 (max heattest) resulted in a max T of up to 70°C!!!
Prime 'blend'test makes T go up to 65°C.
Now for what i tough was en investment for better cooling... these test show me wrong!
Has anyone got any ideas on this subject?

Saw Your post and here some info and thoughts about mounting coolers to CPU with pushpins.

About the pushpin doesn't stay in place may depend on how it's "turned"
before you push it down.
When the "arrows" pointers on the pushpins are turned anti clockwise, this is the way to turn it when it's to be released from the board.
They are all to be turned "clockwise" as far they go to be able to lock down with a "CLICK"
My last "pushpin" was very hard to push down to lock but this is also a good thing as a certain presssure
is needed to maka a good heat transfer.
The amount of paste is also important as it takes up space.Not much is needed just enough to fill micro groves.(link obove)
Hope this will help and not be confuseing.

I can send you new VTMS clips, but please make a request on our homepage But my question is, one Push-Pin are broken or something ?
Thanks for the replies. I have sent a request to your services and they will sent new VTMS clips.
To Okiwana Okimoto;
do you mean that you use the included thermal grease for 5-10 times, in that way that you remove the last paste every time?
If so, using most of the included paste probably wasn't a good idea. I tought is was, since that is shown on the installation vid.
Also, i have seen damage on the pins, probably because they jumped in and out the holes too much.
As soon as the new pins arrive, i'll get to work and make sure all gets attached with pressure.
