Scythe is world-renowned for it's PC cooling solutions, and the only thing many users are calling for is a bolt-through bracket which provides more even and greater pressure to the CPU. Read this tutorial to see how to make your own DIY bolt-through bracket which could do leaps and bounds for your Scythe cooler!

Now, with that out of the way, let's begin!
We will be performing this modification with an extra Intel Socket 775 bolt-through bracket. And we will be installing a Scythe Yasya SCYS-1000 CPU cooler using this mod, as Scythe's CPU coolers normally utilize a push-pin mounting bracket for their coolers. A bolted mounting solution is what I feel is the only accessory missing for the Yasya, especially being that it's such a big cooler. Scythe's Ninja Wire helps a bit with these issues, but a solid solution was still desired.
Here's what you will need:
- Screw Driver
- Small flat-head screwdriver
- Bolt-through bracket kit
- Bolt Cutter
- Size 6 Washers
- 1/4-inch M3 metric bolts (if you don't want to cut the ones provided with the mounting kit)
This guide is intended as purely informational in nature. We assume no liability for any damages ore other accidents which may result attempting to perform this modification, and by following, it is understood that you do so at your own risk.
The first thing to do will be to take the push-pins off of the original mounting brackets. This is a slightly tricky process, and I'll do my best to explain what you need to do.
What you need to do is to turn the push pin to the "open" position, and pull it out as far as it will go. Then, there will be one tab still catching, as shown in the picture. Take your small flathead and carefully pry this open and pull up on the upper portion of the push pin and it should slide off completely intact. The black part can be slide back onto the white portion at any time if you want to reassemble the push pin.
