Hello ! I'v bought the new Ultra120 Extreme, all good until I wanted to mount it on my DFI Sli-DR Expert (skt939) when I run into some problems. I have bought it from their partener in Romania : www.pccoolers.ro , and thet provided me with this adaptor :

The thing is that I folowed all te pics, but I can't get that adaptor over the heapipes(it does not have enough room to rotate). What shoul I do ? Am I doing something wrong ? Is pointless to keep trying ?!



Thank you.

Is the bracket catching on the heatpipes? If it is then you might have to get the dremmel out and grind away the areas where it's catching.

I made a custom set using the AM2 instalatio kit. I also put an Evercool VR-RF(not the recomandede re because [I] can't find it in my country). I used the cooper heatsink to put on my Al mosfets radiators.
Drom in temp about 10 degrades from the Sharkoon CPU Red Shock and the stock DFI cooler !

@brinco : do you have metal backplate to replace the default plastic backplate from expert ?
I have ordered it too, for my Ultra-D or my Expert.
and how about the retention kit? is it included ?
