bought Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan  from amazon as the listing said that it supports 775 chip set BUT can't get x bracket to fit??? the MB is a asus p5ql pro with an intel q9550 chip on it.

sure but what of please?  You know what the cooler looks like and the board looks like the attached, so what would you like to see?  If it helps the mounting plate on the rear of the motherboard fitted perfectly, it's just the x bracket will NOT fit at all. I have tried ALL the hole configurations.  Maybe I am missing something here. FIrst could you confirm that the item I purchased from Amazon ( see original post) will fit a 775 chip. If you look at the amazon listing link I posted

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005O65JXI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

you will see in the table that the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 is "supposed" to fit the lga775 socket. Mine does NOT.  If you could post an image of what the x frame settings should be for the lga775 I would be happy to try it out but I have tried all the settings AND the instructions included with the cooler does NOT mention the 775.  I have includes a photo of the instruction manual that came with the kit and a blowup of the x frame configuration.

Hey Mohd

thanks for the help, It's EXACTLY what happened to me!!! Coolermaster need to get onto Amazon to get them to change the listing on their site. They have the link in this post. Thanks again and I'll get this returned to Amazon asap!  Again you have been great thanks so much.
