Hyper 212 backplate not fitting in my Mobo

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN, I have a problem which i hope you can help me with. I recently bough computer parts to build a computer but it isent going so well, particularly with the after cooler i'm trying in install. I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo that i'm trying to install and it just wont fit. What i mean by that is the four standoffs that are suppose to go on the backplate are not going in.

Here is a pic

You see that i have 3 standoffs mounted to the backplate but the last one i have just doesn't fit. I'm im dong something wrong? Or is it that the standoff is just kinda screwed up?

That is a Asrock Extreme4 Z77 mobo with 1155 i5

I had this happening to me many times. Just force it in or try to twist the screw, you will eventually get it in. Be careful though. Don't apply TOO much force.

Good luck!

I tried putting some pressur but got scared thinking i would break the mobo.. I will try aging with a little more force.
I have one other question then, if I have different standoffs, can I use them insted of the ones CM provided?

The bolts are groved.. with a flat edge.. spin the bolt until it drops into place.

You first have to check if they fit. The one offered by CM does the job though.
