H100 backplate?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
in the first 2 steps of the instructions given with the kit, it tells you to tighten down the back plate with the studs provided.

my question being, once the 4 studs are tightened down completely, is it normal for the back plate to still be slightly loose?

No shouldnt be loose at all, i have one on a Rampage IV Extreme and i can propably do each screw up another 5 turns and mine isnt loose, but its best not to overtighten, Did you tighten them down in a diagonal pattern ie opposite corners at a time??

i tightened them all different ways, just to see if maybe i was doing it wrong. same result each time.

keep in mind that this is just the backplate that is loose. i have not attached the pump/block of the h100 yet. so its just the backplate and the 4 studs at the moment.

its almost like the little spacers on the backplate that poke throught the holes on the motherboard are just slightly too long.
