Recently I received all the components for my Ryzen 7 upgrade. One of the items is a Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED Turbo which according to the website, packaging and instructions is fully compatible with AM4. Well, I'm afraid to say that is just not the case. I've been spending hours today trying to make this cooler fit on my ASUS board to no avail. It seems the retention clip provided with the kit will in absolutely no way clip close on the motherboard's bracket unless I bend it in such way that it defeats the purpose or worse still, damage the CPU or motherboard.
I've also Google'd like crazy with no results. Unfortunately the platform and cooler's too new for there be any helpful tips out on the web.
If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
The motherboard in question: ASUS Prime X370-Pro
