When I was installing my Ryzen 7 3700X with the wraith prism cooler, I applied some force and the lever handle broke. Now there's nothing I can do with the lever... Any ideas on how to help?
you can find a new cooler on ebay where I bought several recently
If it's within the first 30 days, RMA it to the place your purchased it. That's really the best, and least expensive, option.
I was looking at a YouTube video showing how to install the AMD Wraith Prism on a Ryzen 3700x processor. There are no levers but a long metallic clip on each side of the Prism that attaches to the Motherboard brackets: How to Install AMD Wraith Prism RGB CPU Cooler [ Ryzen 3700x ] Beginner Friendly - YouTube
By lever, are talking about the side metallic clips that attaches to the motherboard?
If your Retailer won't replace the Wraith Prism, Open an Online AMD Warranty Request (https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/warranty-information/rma-form ) and see if AMD will replace it under Warranty.
I am presuming the Wraith Prism came bundled with the Ryzen when you purchased it. So it has a 3 year AMD Warranty. But the AMD Warranty becomes effective AFTER any Warranties from the Retailer or Vendor.
But if for some reason the Retailer Warranty won't cover your Prism, I then suggest to open an AMD Warranty Request. The worst they can say is go through your Retailer Warranty and the best is they will replace it.
There is a lightweight lever on the other side. By comparison, the old Phenom coolers are more robust but lack the colorful LED effects.
