HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 Server Second Heatsink Install?

Hi Folks,

 

  Was wondering if anybody knew how to install the second heatsink for the second cpu.  When I opened the case to check out the heatsink hole spacing I was surprised to see 4 (what looks like screws screwed in from behind the motherboard) screws coming out of the heatsink install holes.  Am I supposed to use a heatsink that screws down onto these screws?  I removed the mobo to see if I could see behind the mobo but it's mounted to the tray.  Any help or links would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hello

 

can you verify you installation process with the instruction provided here?

You can view systemboard image on page 82 of the same document.

 

If you are asking about 4 round parts around each sockets - this is a 4 heatsink connection points.

You don't need to attach any assemly on the back of the system board as we need to do in the case of home PC systemboards from ASUS/MSI/... vendors.

What did you do to figure it out? It's driving me crazy! I went to a remote site to upgrade a server and can't figure out how to install the heatsink because of the 4 posts
