Sad GA-G1.SNIPER Z97 ATX Compatibility With H60 CPU Cooler

The bottom bracket does not go through with my Motherboard (MB GIGABYTE|GA-G1.SNIPER Z97 ATX R) And this is really frustrating. It frankly doesn't fit.

Anyone know a different bracket I can purchase? I was excited to put my new comp together and now I think I'm screwed here stuck with the stock cooler from intel.

Have you checked that all 4 of the pins on the backplate are lined up exactly? It's easy for one of them to move slightly. Also check that the notches on the backplate are lined up correctly with the screws on the back of the motherboard.

They are, the bracket is too big for the holes. The stock cooler fits through them but not the H60 brackets?

Can you post a picture and show us? You should be able to move the standoffs on the back bracket inward (they can be a little fussy) and get the bracket to fit just fine.
