Scythe Mugen 2 and socket 1155 mainboard

When I moved my home machine to i7-2600K I realized out that Scythe Mugen 2 cpu cooler which I was using lacks elements to mount it on socket 1555 motherboard.

I looked at shops and found out that I need SCCSMG2-1156 (Scythe Mugen 2 mounting kit for Socket 1156/1155) as I have quite old version of cooler (then there was Rev. B released with support for all socket types). But then problem started — no one in Poland had them…

So I contacted Scythe directly and later after spending 10€ I got mounting kit delivered at Xmas Eve. Took me some days to find time to mount it.

First attempt ended with lot of curses, angry email to Scythe and stock cooler mounted again.

But I decided to not give up. Did some extra research and found this YouTube video where I saw that I mounted bolt screws wrong…

So I did another try. This time it fitted perfectly and I can enjoy silence.

Next step: replace new case fans with more quiet ones.
