Okay i just got this today SVC Golden Gate 30
So i try putting it on to this mobo the Msi Kt7 pro 2-a

It fits on their but the the thing is hard to get on. See on the golden gate the latch thang has a joint. So when i push down it so f'nn hard getting on an i fear i may break one the three capicators on the right hand side.

So what is the easiest way to get it on? I try screw drivers but since the latch thang has joint it's hard.
So how did you get yours on? Thanks in advance.
I must say i'm impressed in the size of this heatsink out weighs my rinky dinky coolermaster too.
Only if it was easier to pop on so i can expereince the pleasure of it.

I think the only way is to try and change the clip so it'll clip eaier
But that seems impossible cause the purple shroud looks damn tough getting off.
