Liquid lite 120 and ASrock AB350M pro4 ( Solved )

Recommended Posts

First time PC builder, i tried installing my master liquid lite 120 into my ASrock AB350M pro4 mother board but no matter what combination of set ups i used, the main metal backing panel would not line up with the motherboard holes, am i missing something or do i need an adaption pack? I also spoke to PC Part Picker who i used to find compatible builds who replied that both parts do fit correctly so i'm unsure on what to do.

Hi, these were the best images i could get without destroying my PC... i tried to show the main problem with the green metal piece matching none of the corner holes (which the amd stock cooler back panel fits through). 

 

cheers

Hello

Thanks for the picture and i will share it to the related team 

+ Did you read some info from the manual ?

My suggestion >>  2 step

1, Try Reassemble back the cooling bracket should be fit in the motherboard hole ( might you need someone to hold the bracket )

2, Also try >> do not remove the stock backplate > refer this thread and picture below : Stock Back Plate

And try read this : Cooler Master - MasterLiquid Lite

I tried following the manual for both AMD and Intel, i will try again and see if i have better luck this time... is the metal back plate, coloured green (shown in my images), still required for the installation?

Try using the stock back plate ( provided from the motherboard ) and see how the result

Because base on my picture above is , the user seem not remove the stock plate .

Hope this time can solve this issue :)

After realising that is was an AM4 setup i needed (which from the instructions provided was not obvious to me) i used the stock back plate rather than the metal provided multi back plate, along side the stock plastic mounts and the hand screwed metal brackets to clip into the mounts. I think having all the options and no real knowledge of different setup types other than standard AMD and Intel was where i went wrong so for anyone in my position it may be beneficial to look into AM4 - FM1 setup before trying to instal. 

 

thanks again
