  1. I have the Cooler master hyper 212 model from here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065

    and my motherboard from here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131379

    and my processor here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117258

    Now all of these support or have LGA 1366, but when going through the instructions for the cooler master heatsink, it says I have to screw this: [​IMG]

    into here:

    but...the screws simply wont fit no matter what. I have tried for over an hour. If anyone has any help they can provide please do, I need this server computer built by tonight.

    By the way those are supposed to go on to fit the backplate. But they just wont fit.

    Turns out the back-plate cannot be removed from the motherboard and I have to get a different cooler that is 3 times the price of the one I got and probably worst....I swear businesses some times....

    Why can't you simply find screws the same length that fit the thread in the back plate?

    Unless this server board has a different bolt patteDoes it?
