new cpu heatsink does not mount to motherboard
Only a Seer at AMD Forum will be able to answer you without first posting your Computer information as per AMD Forum Rules: INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN POSTING A QUESTION
Which MB, processor and how does your heat sink mount. two clip or four screws?
Plus what type of CPU Cooler are you using - Make & Model?
Just curious to know how you were able to figure out how to install the Heatsink on the CPU.
Also afterward might as well mark your fix as "Correct" so others will know if they have a similar problem.
