h50 problems

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I am building my first desktop PC. I am having an issue with the backplate on the corsair h50 conflicting with surface mount pins on the bottom side of my mother board. I'm not sure what to do, I could use input from experts.

edit: specifically the 1156 mounting

2 things I thought of are:
1) to file or cut down the backplate, but then I couldn't send the h50 back if I need to.

2) replace the original backplate with a 3rd party X shaped backplate, if possible. (Recommendations would be helpful.)

Any other suggestions would be appreciated, or comments about this...


Thanks.

Please can you give us a pics. Maybe you are just mounting it wrong way. Which socket mobo do you have?

By "surface mount pins" I am going to assume you mean the brass board-mount-stand-offs here are a couple options -

a) Dremel a rectangle in the motherboard tray.
or
b) Buy 1/2" stand-offs (instead of, I'm assuming, either 1/4" of 7/16" brass stand offs)

I would reccomend buying the diffent stand-offs, it will most likely be cheaper and easier fix.

Yes, higher standoffs would help, but the problem (as in the picture) is the little pins that stick down from the ICs are in the way of the circular shape of the backplate

Just tried it...
If I turn it 90 degrees it conflicts with the shown pins / mount on the left of the CPU

Anyone have any ideas, or should I send the h50 back and get a different cooler?
