Hello, It´s my first time installing a cpu cooler (Corsair A50) and I have a question.

 

I don´t know where to place the washers (black plastic).

 

Which location is correct, example 1 or 2.?

 

Thanks.

 

PD: Sorry my bad english.

I watch an installation of one of these online and the reviewer didn't use the included washers at all.

 

If I had to guess though I would say that your first picture is the right way.

I just installed one of these on a gaming computer for a friend of mine. I'd recommend picture 2, as there is a little space between the bracket and the underside of the motherboard. Also, I think this is best to do it that way to put another barrier between the metal bracket and contact with the motherboard.

Corsair Tech Support responded my doubt:

 

 

Technical Support Picture number 2 is the correct way to apply the washers, let me know if you have any other questions! 10/7/2010 6:32:21 PM
