Hyper 212 (black edition) backplate does not fit Gigabyte x470 motherboard

Recommended Posts

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.
