  1. Same thing for me but more - I bought an Asrock B350 Fatality mobo to go with my Ryzen 5 1600x CPU. As the 'x' series don't come with coolers, decided to buy a CoolerMaster Evo 212x. Firstly, the screws that came with it did not fit in the stock backplate that came with my mobo, and the backplate I was provided with (from CM) did not align with any of the holes around my CPU in the motherboard. Even if the backplate aligned or the screws fit, the "AM4" bracket doesn't even fit. It's too short and the only way to get it to fit would be to just shove it in and (when tightened) damage the mobo. Not happy at all with this false advertisement, last time I buy a thing from Coolermaster. (Below I have shown the incompatibilities. On the image with the arrows I am showing where the screws are supposed to fit but do not. In that image is the stock backplate that came with the motherboard.)
