Can't install aftermarket cpu cooler help!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So, it has been a year since i got my computer, but i never could install my hyper 212+. I have a biostar Tpower motherboard(it's a p55 1156 socket mobo), but for some reason there is something on the back of the mobo that doesn't let me screw in the standoffs all the way. does anybody have a biostar Tpower, that can help me?

Yeah man, you have to pull the old one off, most coolers these days come with their own back plate.
