Need some Help! RAM+ Hyper 212 heatsink problems - Page 2

Yes I'm using the I/O shield that came with the mobo. Actually my case didn't come with a cut-out so no confusion there. Do you think I should install the mobo in the case already or wait until the psu comes and test things out first?

It might take a few attempts but you will get it eventually.
Thanks, I haven't heard a click so far so maybe their not fully in yet.

Think I may I figured out the I/O problem, again your advice was the key putting in the mobo at an angle allowed it to enter the I/O shield somewhat.
So I installed the Mobo and it went great, the fan is still an issue though and now on to installing my GPU.

I would mount the fan on the side of the heatsink towards the pcie slots. But have it blow air through the 212+ at the 200mm fan as you expected to.

Theres nothing wrong with making sure things fit while you wait for parts. I have in the past received cases that were bent or warped and could not facilitate proper motherboard mounting.

once you have the psu, still test everything outside of the case.
