Successful installation of my I7-7700 and aftermarket cooler

Was able to get my i7-7700 cpu installed along with my deepcool gammaxx 400 after market cpu cooler. CPU installation was ez but the aftermarket cooler on the other hand, eh. The aftermarket cooler was easy to assemble with the intel cpu cooler set that it came with (2x2 intel cooler push pins) but the installation on the mobo was a pain. After lining up the push-pin along with the motherboard cpu cooler holes, it became very difficult to push pin down. This was due to the fact that the last push pin was being blocked by the cooler's huge fan. So I had to wiggle my fingers in there for to push it down and look at the back of my motherboard to see if it successfully pushed down (for about half an hour). 

 

So far, my cpu runs games better than before and cooler with my aftermarket cooler. However, the fans do get loud at times esp. playing on vsync off on arma 3.

Looking good! Yeah, some coolers have the terrible mounting hardware (Be Quiet comes to mind). Cryorig and Cooler Master coolers are some of the easiest air coolers to mount.

For future reference, you can clip on the fan after the heatsink is installed.

Hahahaha I used to have the DRP3 as well. I COULD NOT for the life of me get it on, had to get my girlfriend to do it and her small nimble hands barely did the job. I sold it and replaced it with the Cryorig R1 which should win some kind of award for ease of installation considering it's a massive air cooler. I've never owned a Noctua cooler but I've heard good things (they are just so ugly).

You can install the heatsink with the fan detached so it's not in the way of the push pins and clip the fan on afterwards.
