h50 problems - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Order a spare H50 backplate, file the one you have to fit OVER the solder joints, and use the one you have, keep the spare for backup, should you need warranty work.

It would be cost and time effective to just make this work, plus a spare backplate should cost no more than $10 shipped - at the most.

I ran into exactly the same problem, not to mention the h50 backplate is flimsy junk to begin with. Order a Xigmatek ACK-I5363. I know it's $10 in addition to what you already put into the h50, but it's rock solid and you will be able to use it for the h50 or any other cooler for that matter. And you won't have to worry about it stripping out like the h50 backplate is so prone to doing.

Sounds like a plan, unless anyone knows why this wouldn't work?

THANK YOU!!!! I have been searching all over the net for a solution to this problem and have not found any advice that actually was worth anything. I installed the stock H50 backplate and actually ruined my brand new board because it put pressure on those IC connections.
