Hyper 212 Evo Cooler

" alt="" class="imgLz frmImg " />

First time builder. Installed Hyper 212 Evo Cooler. Have read forums and watched videos online. Worried because the lock is somewhat under one of the arms. The whole cooler itself appears even to me...I tightened it in the star method...but just curious if the lock next to the hole on the cooler where the retention plate goes into has to be visible (not underneath one of the arms).

Every time I tried to line up the arms and started screwing in the screws by the star method, one arm would move a little bit over the lock in order to have everything lined up. Using a LGA 1155 and plate/stand offs/screws on retention bracket all in line per instructions.

Don't want to go any further until it is right so any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!

I can't understand your problem.

The cooler doesn't fit in your motherboard?

No, it does. I was just curious if the middle screw for the retention plate needed to be screwed in straight. Everything else is fine...just have seen videos and pictures of other people's installations and their screw was screwed in all the way. In other words, I am curious if the way I have it mounted is going to have any adverse effects.

That shouldn't be like that, I had an EVO , and the screw should be straight not bent.

Ok, thanks! Will there be adverse effects if I keep it the way it is? Only reason I ask is because I ended up mounting the motherboard, putting in the drives, and plugging everything in since some friends of mine said that, since I am not overclocking and everything is level/tight, I should not worry about a straight screw. I posted the original question prior to talking to them...

Thanks!

Ok.

Now I understand. No, screw that doesn't make any "big" change on your cooler but as SR-71 says, something isn't correct in the "normal" position of that screw.
