Edit: Archer S mounted a 280mm radiator here. http://www.overclock.net/t/1270969/official-corsair-vengeance-c70-gaming-case-owner-club/2000#post_19432664
He later expanded some of the holes with a file to fit it with the grommets.

So you just use the washer provided by you H100i? That's what I'm using right now with my 3770K. I still have the X60 sitting in the box. Contemplating taking apart the build again to install the X60. The trouble is, the X60's backplate is weird. I can't seem to "fit" it without deforming it to match the stand-off holes. Also, is NZXT serious with the sticky pads they provided, actually sticking to the motherboard?

Yeah I just use the washers that came with the H100i. You could use any washer really, as long as they don't let the screws fall through. The mounting holes on the case are designed for fan screws which have a larger head than those on radiator screws so you need the washers. The rubber grommets are there, in theory, to reduce noise caused by vibration. Haven't noticed any difference in noise from not using them. Don't know much about the Kraken but I'll download the manual and check.

EDIT: Installation of the X60 seems pretty pretty straightforward. The pads you stick on are just there to hold the backplate in place till everything is screwed on. I'm sure they easy to remove if you need to. Are you sure that you using the correct backplate? The holes you need to use for LGA1155 seem to be the hole on the inside top, but it seems they are in different positions on each corner. What I would do is take the backplate put a long screw through a mounting hole and then push that through the mounting hole on the motherboard. Then take another screw and use that to line up another hole on the backplate with the hole on the motherboard, this will help you to see the correct holes on the backplate to use. Don't attach the pads yet though.Once you know the correct holes to use you can insert the threaded metal inserts. Then attach the pads and attach the backplate to the motherboard.

EDIT2: Seems the mounting holes on the backplate are labeled




second pic is the backplate for a x40 but installation is the same and the only difference is the size of the radiator. Odd that they have LGA775 mounting holes. Also remember that LGA1155 and LGA1156 share the same socket size so those would be the hole to use.
This should explain everything else.

Of course, in words everything seems simple. But then again, I'm a total n00b. The price I pay for ignorance and bliss after being a spoiled Mac user for so many years (not saying all Mac users are ignorant, though!)

Yes, I did try placing the stand off into the backplate (1156/1155) into the correct holes as labelled. Except, when matching it to the Sabertooth Z77 holes, the backplate with the standoff won't match correctly unless I force it to "fit". Which means, there's deformation on the X60 backplate (although somewhat "slight"). I don't know if that's going to cause problem in the long run or not.

Thanks though! I'll watch and rewatch those again. Maybe I was doing something wrong! Not sure if it's worth switching to the X60 again; after all everything is working just fine with the H100i I've already got installed.
post #2768 of 8405
Well what ever you decide to do I hope it all works out. I honestly don't know what's not working with the installation. This things usually just "work" unless you have an odd motherboard or the brackets faulty. With a Z77 Sabertooth everything should be easy. Either way, good luck.

Thanks. They are Gelid Wing 12s and 14s...aka "Gamer" fans. UV reactive, but I just have white cathodes.

I grab a few when I'm in Canada on business. Really cheap at Canada Computers. Bought mainly for the nice bearing and the fact they work at 5VDC.
