Issues with Wraith Max Cooler installation

Dear Corbell,

I'm not sure if I have a problem with my Wraith Max cooler, it is impossible to install the cooler on my Asrock AB350 itx motherboard without possibly breaking the motherboard?

Hi there,

We do not have this cooler but you can get some pointers from the users who got it previously from an AMD promo:

I recalled many of the bros mentioned that it's very tight and need to use alot of force.
Some loosen the screws, adjusted it on and tightened again.

Cheers.

I finally manage to mount it, but without thermal paste. Took about an hour

O: so all you did was remove the plastic bracket and clip it to the cooler first? Then you aim nice nice then screw all 4 together ah?

I need a long thin screw driver sia, house don't have haha
