So i was installing my 3700x and wraith prism that came with it and i followed a guide on youtube and i clipped the one side in and then the other one, but when i tried pulling the handle from left to right it's like the handle couldn't go any further without breaking it and i mean it was close to breaking it. It looked like it was only pushing down one side.
I've already tried reseating the cpu and trying again with the cooler but nothing seems to work. And please don't say i need to push harder.
it needs some force (not that much thou) and wont break this easily
if you are unsure bring it to a pc-shop
I suggest using the wraith cooler which is mounted on the motherboard and does not use the clip
I removed the clip on mine so I could install my cooler
It's a beautiful thing when the CPU locks into place.I'm sure you know (Feels like perfect metal on metal).-There is no "give" in those connectors... take time to make sure the CPU is in position.
