Hyper 212 Evo incompatible with 1150?

I'm putting together a 1150 system for a friend, and I got a Hyper 212 Evo supposing it'd work on it since the old CPU coolers usually fit on new sockets. However, I haven't found how to make the mounting bracket fit on the screws held by the back plate, and I suspect I got an old revision that doesn't supprt 1150... Though I read a bunch of threads that said it's compatible, I can't find how. Any helpful information?

  1. LGA1150 and LGA1155 sockets have the same CPU cooler mounting holes location, therefor a LGA1155-compatible cooler will fit into a LGA1150 motherboard easily. This means you can use the 212 EVO on any LGA1150 motherboard without any problems.

    So why can't I make it fit? I've read that response in several different threads already but it doesn't help squat, I already know it's supposed to be compatible.
  3. Were you able to fit that cooler on a LGA1155 board?

    I've placed another Hyper 212 Evo on a 1155 mobo before, but not this exact one because I just ordered these new parts for a new build.

    As long as you aren't using 2011 bracket, the "default" mounting brackets have several notches that will change the orientation of the 4 screws, so that you can use it for amd sockets OR 1156,1155,1150. Before doing anything, after the back plate is installed, play around with the mounting bracket (no heatsink) to set it to the correct notch so that all 4 screws line up with the back plate holes. The 4 screws will move around since these are inside of "oval" holes, which will help you to line up the screw tips to the back plate holes.

    Once you make it fit without using the heatsink, mark that notch, as during install you will need to change it again to put it through between the heatsink pipes. Once the Heatsink is placed on/ lined up with the cpu, you can line it up to the 4 backplate holes again.

    I've been doing that, but no matter how much I fiddle with the mounting bracket notches, all 4 screws won't fit at the same time, 2 at most. That's why I suspect I have an old revision that won't fit 1150.

    I've used hyper 212+, evo on several builds, and I haven't had any issue transferring it from another socket (i.e. LGA775) to 1155. If it has been used for a while, it does take a bit of fiddling to get it right, but you really shouldn't be having issues if the heatsink is new. And as far as I know, all Hyper 212+ or EVO use universal bracket that fits all sockets from 775 to 1150 to all recent AMDs. (I can't remember of LGA2011 required another bracket..). This should be less of an issue, since hyper's screws are not fixated. The brackets move, and screws move. Try to make the screws on the bracket (at the least) remotely resemble a 'square." are the brackets having issues to line up to be "square" or are the screws not lining up afterward?

    Also, I suggest that you double check on the parts to make sure it isn't defective, and I would stop messing with the board, and simply try to make the bracket fit the back plate, and try to compare it to the intel original heatsink. Obviously, something isn't right, but hyper series fits 1150 socket.
  8. 1155/1156/1150 all have the same mounts. It has to fit

    The backplate fit just fine, but the screws on the mounting brack wouldn't line up properly no matter how I tried to align it. I've given up by now and just put the stock intel cooler on it because I couldn't find any way to make it fit.

    Try to contact Coolermaster for support, and claim that the bracket is defective, won't work with 1150 no matter what. May be they could send you a new bracket.

    They'd probably make me pay a ton for shipping or something though... And I don't have the time for it, this build's for a friend and he's picking it up either tomorrow or sometime next week.
