H90 Retention Ring does not line up with LGA1151 backplate


Recommended Posts

I have the backplate on. I have the retention ring on the CPU block.


When I went to screw the cpu block to the backplate pegs, i found that the screws did not line up:




I tried rotating the CPU block 90 degrees, but it had the same problem:




The product description for the H90 says it is compatible with the LGA 1151 chipset: http://www.corsair.com/en-us/hydro-series-h90-140mm-high-performance-liquid-cpu-cooler


I feel like I need a different retention ring in order for this to fit properly.

crap. i just realized what I did wrong.


The plastic clips that hold the screws to the retention ring needed to be rotated 180 degrees.


I'm not entirely sure what set of screws I should use now though. There's one set with longer threads, and one set with shorter threads. The manual doesn't have anything listed for 1151. Guess I'll try it myself and find out
