Hi,

I am building my first pc. I have ran into a problem already. The Hyper 212 evo won't fit on the asus p8z68-z as there is a blue heatsink in the way. Please help?

are you sure you mounted the 212 in the right orientation? and if possible can you show a picture

You should have plenty of room to mount that heatsink. Make sure you have it in the right orientation, the fans should be blowing horizontal, not vertical.

It should look like this once mounted:

Fit the heatsink first, then the fan.

I'd rather build something to be proud of. Build a system that is my own. Acquire upgrades and peripherals in my own time. Enjoy my creation as it evolves.STEAM ID: KPAkillerOrigin ID: KPAkiller[URL="http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2039900"]

Thanks for the replies but I still haven't fixed it, does anyone have any picture of what it should look like on this board?
