Corsair H60 install

I have the latest edition, which I believe is from 2018. I'm stuck on the last step before plugging everything in. I hope somebody might be able to help me. I don't understand when you have to tighten the two screws, the ones where the screwdriver type are at the bottom. I've watched countless and countless of videos. There is no hole for those screws to go through. The pump just keeps on sliding on the compound. I probably am missing the easiest part, but I just can't figure out how to get the pump to stay over the cpu. I think older models you click it to lock it then turn it. But I don't see anything to lock it against.

There is a backplate (goes behind the mobo) and 4 screws to mount the waterblock/pump to the threads of the backplate.

See my pic of the Corsair H60 mount in push/pull:

You get a backplate with the Corsair H60, since I recently transitioned the PC from water back to air, I just reused the Swiftech Apogee II backplate.

You think I could use the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition. The problem I'm seeing is the backplate that Corsair gives is in two separate metal pieces. How do I connect them to go under the motherboard?

The manual should have pics and instructions on how to properly mount for your socket.

If you can't figure it out, look at the backplate you're suppose to use but can't figure out how to mount (sounds like it's broken in half) and as long as the screw stands are the same length it should work like the Swiftech backplate worked for me.

Yeah aftermarket backplates are kinda universal, as long as the screws are the right length and size.

Might be a dumb question but are you using an Intel bracket on AMD CPU socket or vice versa? Looks like the brackets I got with my H60 (2015? version) had both an AM3 and Intel 115x bracket. Which CPU do you have, Intel or AMD? Or better yet how about a parts list of stuff you're working with. Just wondering if this is part of the confusion... The X bracket should go behind on the Intel board with the 4 screws on top, while if you're on an AMD board you don't use the X bracket and just use the 2 hole top bracket with the small handle pin inserts that lock into the standard mounting black clips (if that makes sense). You shouldn't be using both (or all 3) brackets at the same time. I'm not saying this to chide/belittle or assume you don't know what you're doing, I'm just trying to figure out what you have going on with the info you provided. I hope this helps in some way!

I have a 3600. The AMD brackets come into 2 metal parts. It's no longer just 1 piece, which makes it difficult to secure the mount. This is the first time using an AMD cpu, it's been a nightmare to say the least. Their stock cooler isnt that bad, I was just looking for cooler temps. Maybe AMD's processor run hotter than I'm used to. I don't know. I get temps in the 80's. So I don't know what's going on. I just ordered my 3rd cooler, the new Noctua low profile for AM4. Hopefully it'll be the charm.

Temps can get higher on them than they used to under older sockets but performance has also increased greatly too. My 2700 with the stock cooler would sometimes hit 40C and the fan would ramp up a bit, and I didn't care for the noise it made so I too went about a different cooler for quieter/cooler performance. I just saw the 2 piece design (my older H60 still had the single piece one) and that does look like a pain. Do the points on each of the 2 clips groove in under the CPU cooler top plate/pump area to at least keep it mounted down while you wiggle the little square clips under the black motherboard standoff brackets? I'd hope Corsair designed it well enough to hold it down but maybe not with what you're saying....

Edit: Meant 40C under basically idle settings, not load just for clarification

OK just watched a video here
. He seems to get the 2 pieces slid into the pump in what looks like slotted cutouts to hold them in place and then attaches the little -[] piece into the bottom of the screw and hooks it over the corner of the black motherboard standoff/brackets. Then tigtens them afterwards. The screw should only be tightening that funny little piece that looks like a box with a gear shift out of it lol and not actually going into any screw holes.
Pic of it here https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Catego...t/p/CW-8960011
Hope that makes sense.
