    Installing the ML120L aio onto a ryzen 5 2600. The instructions are pure picture based, showing which clamp/bracket to use, then it shows tightening the thumbscrews on each side. How much do I tighten them down? Anyone have any idea? Do I just finger tighten and then just a little more? Don't want to brake CPU or motherboard etc.

    get them finger tight then a bit more but make sure they feel even.
    edit: oh and they will probably bottom out before theres a risk of damage.

    Ok great. I did do finger tight and make sure they feel and looked even. Not going to attempt to bottom them out as there are still 2 or 3 threads left till bottoming out. After firing the computer up and going into the BIOS, the monitoring section showed the cpu temp fluctuating between 33 and 34 C, so, I think its good.

    Thanks for the help.
