I have no experience with this mounting system. It's the latest version of the Megahalems, and I'm trying to install it on a socket 1155 mobo. I've put the 'rivet nuts' in the backplate, and put on the o-rings to hold them in place. Now I position the backplate and place the motherboard over it so that the the ends of the rivet nuts are poking throught the holes in the board. Now I screw the 'double end studs' into the rivet nuts (the short ends of the studs). I tighten them as far as possible, but the backplate is loose. Is it supposed to be loose? It doesn't feel right at all. Noctua backplates are 100% fixed before you attach the actual HSF. Something must be wrong.
