  1. The V8 CPU Cooler was supplied with lga1366 brackets for my i7 cpu and motherboard, but the screws that screw the cooler to the motherboard would not, under any circumstances, fit thru the designated holes and engage the threads in the LG1366 brackets no matter what technique or force was used. The upper ferrules were simply much too big to fit into the incorrectly threaded holes in the brackets. I have not seen this problem on the forums as yet, so I'm sure mine is an anomaly. I've built many, MANY systems using all manner of aftermarket coolers, both air and water, and have not encountered this problem. I would simply use the stock cooler with my Intel 920 i7CPU, but I don't want to have to take the system apart again to replace the stock cooler with another aftermarket device. That being said, has anyone else run into this problem? I have the parts for the following system: Lian-Li Black FULL tower Alum Case EVGA X58 Mobo Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor EVGA 260 GTX FTW Series Graphics Cards x 2 Corsair HX1000 watt PS 3 Segate 1TB SATAII HDs Corsir Dominator 6GB Triple Channel Memory Kit Coolermaster V8 2 Samsung LightScribe DVD+/- R Burners Floppy Unfortunately, the parts are simply sitting on my build stand waiting for me to decide what to do. I have sent a message to CoolerMaster requesting new brackets and screws as soon as possible. As I said, I do all sorts of builds, and build many other things as well, and I KNOW that I was assembling the brackets correctly. The parts were simply machined incorrectly. Can anyone from CM Speak to this? Thanks!!! Mark
