Motherboard and cooler incompatible?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to install my PH TC14PE on a m5a99fx pro r2.0 and it doesn't seem to fit. It should fit according to people I've asked...






The two strip adapters don't line up with the holes in the board. Unless I'm doing this all wrong, the only way is either to screw the screws in at an angle, or drill into the board itself.

First off dont drill into the board. That cannot turn out well at all. Sencondly, is there any other mounting hardware that is similar to those brackets that you might have got confused with? if so try those.

Edit: it should be the ones with the very long white washers.
