Hey Guys,

After waiting for 30 minutes of ASUS web chat with no luck and after the countess articles goggling. I cant see to find a guide to remove the "Standard CPU Bracket" on this type of motherboard. I know that this motherboard is new and I was wondering how you can do it. I know that it very simple but complex and I just want to install a slient fan without breaking my motherboard before I even use it.

Which motherboard are you using? Are you referring to the bracket the CPU's heatsink and fan attaches to? From what I remember, the bracket may have screws that are attached on the underside of the motherboard. If this is the case, you will have to remove the motherboard from the case. I had a similar issue on an AM3 motherboard, the Asus Sabertooth 990FX, I could either almost completely disassemble the computer, or reuse the standard AMD bracket. I chose to reuse the bracket with the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 cooler.

This is the link of the motherboard http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A99X_EVO/

I was going to buy a aftermarket cooler for my motherboard but I have to remove the black standard mounting brackets for stock cooler mounting points. I am afraid of removintg the brackets will damage the warranty and the board if I did it wrong

Now when you remove it does it have any compound to lock the black plate other then the screws.

I am going to pair this up with an AMD FX series but every installation videos has that remove on a after cooler installation video.

It will not void the warranty and it is pretty straight forward to take them off. There is no compound under there when you take it off.

Actually, I dont know if this is still true or not, but using any other cooling device other then what is provided with the CPU automatically voids AMDs warranty. At least thats the way it used to be-they may have changed it, best way to find that out is to open up that little instruction booklet that came with the CPU, the warranty information is there. That being said, there is absolutly no way for them to know if you used aftermarket cooling or not unless you told them, and using a aftermarket cooler on the motherboard wont break the motherboards warranty in most cases-but again, wouldnt hurt to check the warranty information that is in the instruction manual.

With most AMD motherboards, the bracket is either held on by 4 screws, or 4 plastic clips. the clips pop out rather easily, and theres rarely anything under them if there is its usually two sided tape, and comes off with ease. As long as your careful, removal is fairly easy, and you can put them back on afterwards if you ever have to return the motherboard.

I do believe that warranty void still stands but the thing is how would AMD find out that you've been using a aftermarket cooler, they can't really.
