What should I do ? .. keep imn mind if i remove the H50 i have no thermal compound nor anything to clean it to replace it.

Im totaly screwed here..
Do you not know that Tractor engine tight and computer tight are two different things? You dont need anywhere near the pressure that would embed the screw into the plastic things.

Three things, Pictures and you should just be able to losen the screws, also theres a possibillity that your motherboard wont work.

I have my H50 as intake fan > rad > fan. I just mounted the rad on the fan the H50 comes with on the case and then used the original case exhaust fan, flipped it around to pull heat off the rad. Works REALLY well for keeping my CPU at about 35C idle 60C max load usually.

. . . yes, i believe you have tighten'd them a bit too far; seem's wierd that the
adapters popp'd out a bit, but your going to need to loosen up and just pull back
the "Ring" with the adapter's on each corner and see IF you can re-insert them.
You shouldn't need to tighten'd each corner down for THAT much pressure=
"...

When i had that initial bracket for my H50, i only tighen'd each screw by use
of just two finger's on the screw-driver and use'd those two finger's for "torque"
feel of tightness>>>just after each one was set and the "snug" setting...
....and that pretty much was like 1/2 to almost 1 complete turn from the
"snug" setting's.
...BUT, now i have >>> THIS <<< for my (aftermarket=NEWer) H50 bracket holdown. . . .
{note: this has a thick "metal" back_base" plate, not plastic }
...and IF no one else has them in stock to purchase, these ARE the one's you can get straight from Corsair by only paying the $5.00 shipping fee...

...the picture is NOT clear enough, BUT it look's like you have the thread'd insert
in the backplate > backwards < . . . the tube part of that threaded insert SHOULD
be press'd thru the backplate towards the mthrbrd for each corner......like i stated,
can't REALLY tell cuz of the pic is NOT clear enough & i might be wrong of looking at it...

{ in the picture of the aftermarket mount i show'd in the previous post,
the backplate is showing how the insert's should protrude thru the
back plate,
sticking up thru top going towards the mthrbrd...}

The brushings are completely messed up it looks like

Im not so concerned about buggering the brushing as i am with my CPU and motherboard being damaged. I dont want to add memory and video card to the motherboard in case something is broken and it in turn damages them to. I have no other coolers to use nor CPUs to use for testing.

My only option now seems to be to contact the retailer i bought the stuff from and enquire as to the process of using the accidental installation damage insurance i got when i bought the components for the build, although I have no idea how this will work in my situation as i have one thing definatly broken(H50) and two things maybe broken with no way to test them here(cpu)/mobo)

The backplate is set up correctly.. the metal you see in that pic sticking out is the screw.

so quick questions. what would be some decently cheap fans to get for this cooler? currently i have a Cm590 case with 5+rear fan installed. most of which are 85 CFm could i just use those for this?
