I just received my motherboard (LGA 2011-3, ASRock, Fatality, x99x killer) and my new cool master 212+.  the mounting bracket will not allow me to attached the cooler, it is still too loose. 

 

does cool master have a new bracket, actually shorter mounting bolts would work?

Hi Daryl,

 

Did you install the correct standoffs on to your motherboard? You need to install the shorter standoffs in a package labelled LGA 2011 and you don't need to change the back plate for LGA 2011-3, you simply just need to install the correct standoffs then mount the cooler with the X-retention bracket on to the standoffs.

 

Please confirm and let me know if you were able to successfully install the cooler.

 

Thanks!
