    Hey All,

    Helping my bro today on his first build. We've just got the processor in, lever down, fan on top, clipped down side it showed on instructions, then the other side. Now all we have to do is pull down this little black lever that's needs the worlds strongest man to do it and it'll probably just end up snapping it.

    Anyone got some tips?

    It's an AMD 939 but you probably didn't need to know that.

    it does require a bit of force try pushing the heatsink slightly while pushing the clip down
