Trouble with cpu help please

Theetexan

I had a lot of difficulty putting the fan cooler on top of my cpu after I had already installed the motherboard.

Is it possible to put the cooler on the cpu first while the board is out of the case then install the whole thing together?

Does anyone use that technique?

It’s a Ryzen 3900x with the cooler that came with it

take out the mobo and redo the install.

you need a flat surface or table to properly screw in the cooler

It’s one of those kind that don’t screw in but has clips that clamp down with a lever
