Corsair iCUE H150i RGB PRO XT + LGA 1700 incompatibility


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was planning to install my h150i rgb pro xt on my lga 1700 asus z690-a prime motherboard but everything was ruined !

 

The backplate just doesnt fit in the holes for lga 1700, I tried my hardest but nothing worked and all I could hear was my motherboards holes getting damaged.

 

Im using the backplate that comes with the AIO and the lga 1700 retrofit kit from corsair.

According to corsair, all I need is the retrofit kit but that is straight up wrong.

SKU : CW-9060045-WW is there in the list...

 

Is there anyone with that same problem ? What am I supposed to do now ?

Hi Yomen123,

 

You need to adjust the holes on the backplate so they're about half way -- they will line up though. Look at both sides of the bracket -- on one side, you should be able to 'slide' / adjust the hole positions.

I think I have an older version of this model... I do not have LGA 1200 standoffs, it stops after LGA 1150.

 

If you compare these 2 manuals, one has lga 1200 and the other does not... I have the one without lga 1200..

I realize that what I need is for LGA 1700, but still, If I have an older version, maybe its not compatible with LGA 1700?

 

Should my backplate still fit ??? theres something wrong somewhere

Same backplate. Please see the highlighted part of this image from the manual of where/how to adjust the backplate hole holes.
