Dark Rock Slim does not work with AM4 sockets
I built my first PC myself about 1.5 weeks
ago with the following components: MSI X470 Gaming Plus MAX
Ryzen 5 3600
Dark Rock Slim
G.Skill Aegis RAM (2x8GB)
(other components gladly on request)
now had I have problems installing the cooler:
I put the spacers out, put the brackets on and screwed them on, applied thermal grease, and put the cooler on.
Then the "bridge" must be put through the cooler and screwed to the brackets, usually so that the prongs of the bridge point downwards so that they interlock with the prongs of the cooler.
The problem came up that there was a loose 0.5-1 CM distance between the bridge and the brackets, so it could not be screwed together.
I then turned the bridge over as an emergency solution, then the screwing worked, but the radiator is not really stuck.
I hope someone has an idea of what it could be ...
