You could put the cooler upside down and lower the MB down to it and tighten screws when you feel them catch but that is less than ideal and can mess things up a bit.
ill see if I can make a video later since I send back my EK 240.
This is what I did:
On the cpu cooler, put the nuts on each corner. Screw them in using the wrench that comes with the cooler.
Install back plate.
Put the mobo in a upright position
with your left hand holding the cooler, push it against the mobo to hold it in place (standing)
From the other side, insert one of the screws and tighten it slightly (alighgint it with the cooler on the other side). The do that for each screw.
