I'm trying to put in a coolermaster 212 rgb black on an LGA1151 board (Asrock Z390 Pro4). I'm having trouble with the backplate mount. I followed the directions but realized that the support mount for the cooler only fits through the holes when the tabs are in a position other than what is said to be the correct one in the manual. Basically, putting the tabs in the LGA115X position doesn't work. The tabs in the LGA2066/2011-v3/2011/1366 position are what fit. It's an LGA1151 board, though. Am I fine just having it fit and going from there or am I dealing with some sort of machining issue that I'll have to resolve later on? I just want to know before I start putting on thermal paste and trying to mount the heatsink. The brackets also are supposed to go off of socket type with different positions for each type. If I were just doing it without the instructions, I'd just put everything in the configuration that has everything fit where they're seemingly supposed to go.
The backplate on the Cooler Master Hyper 212 black edition does NOT fit and CANNOT be installed flush on the Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 Wifi motherboard as it conflicts with an existing metal shroud on one edge (with one tab potentially pressing on motherboard solder joints)... SEE ATTACHED IMAGE. The only apparent way to correct this is to cut down two of four tabs that protrude on the backplate, something completely unacceptable in my mind for a new PC build worth thousands of dollars. Any suggestions or workarounds for a more aesthetically appealing solution? Thanks.
