Issue with mounting Hydro X Series XC8 water block

Recommended Posts

Currently trying to mount an XC8 waterblock onto my AMD Ryzen 5 3600 to my mother board. My question is has anyone had issues with the screws not being able to attach to the CPU back plate? The motherboard didn't come with the standard Back plate and had to buy one from some where. Has anybody seen this? Any suggestions on how I can get this to work? I was planning on changing out the back plate, however all the ones local are they same length and are flush with the Motherboard.

I’m familiar with the XC7. On the XC8 do the mounting threads on the backplate that comes with the kit adjust or slide to fit the board. I don’t think backplates for AM4 could even be interchange with Intel but possibly on the 1700 since I’m waiting to do that build.  Good luck!!
