Installing a massive heatsink that requires a backplate might be intimidating for some.
However, the back-plate and bolt-thru mechanism are much more sturdy and stable than the tension-mount or plastic push-pins most small heatsinks use.
While the instructions included with the Scythe's Mugen-2 Rev.B are very easy to follow, here are some tips.
I've been developing software and hacking hardware since the early '80s... The good part of them on Unix and Linux.
In 2008, I switched my main system (a Linux Laptop) to a MacBook Pro.
Wanting to add a Desktop companion to it, I decided to play and build a Hackintosh.
Started this blog to collect my notes, hoping it will also help others.
If you, like me, get a kick out of hacking and tweaking, are planning to make the transition from Linux, or are just building a Hackintosh and looking for solutions... Stay around !
