i just build my 2nd pc but i had a problum with putting the stock
heatsink on the cpu
(AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 2.2GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor retail)
i had to use force to get the clip to go over
when i came to push the lever down on the heatsink it was so tight that
i could not get it to go down without with risk of snaping it off the mounting of the heatsink is very tight on the cpu so i left it and finished biulding my pc

only problom with that i tryed getting the heatsink off and i cannot get it off
as its that tight on the clips that hold it down

power up first time every thing working ok

firstly
can i run it without the lever of the heatsink going down that holds it down

secondly

the cpu temp idle is runnign from 37-39 c (used core temp beta and speedfan)been about a week now

ran prime 95 for about 2 hours and it rose to 44-45c

is that the average temps for a AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 2.2GHz on stock heatsink and fan ?

yes, is the standard temps. would still put he clamp down, mine was very tight to on a 3800 x2, 6150k8ma winfast board. but it weas fine, and i had no problems removing the stick sink to put on my aquarius II. what kind of troubles are you having with removing the heatsink?
