Hello, A little while ago i asked for help choosing a CPU cooler, having gotten the 212 EVO I'm having a hell of a time getting it installed onto my CPU. currently my problem is that the risers (stand offs) that come with it do not seem to thread with the nuts that also came with.
I've been trying to attach the rear mounting plate for a long time and i know I'm attaching the nuts level to the riser threading, but 3 of the risers won't thread with the nuts and i cannot attach the rear mounting plate without them.
Am i doing something wrong? Is there a step i am missing?

On an intel bd you use the backing plate with the feet ones toward the cpu socket, on amd bds you flip it over so the feet face away from the bd and then you bolt thru the one that are flush with the bd. If your still having problems see if the bolts and nuts threat together in your hands
*Then see the VIDEO BELOW in my post below.
They do recommend cross-threading. For example, screw in the first nut slightly, then screw in the one DIAGONAL to it. Then do the other threads. Go back and repeat two or three times by tightening a bit each time.
The only thing I could think of is that you've tightened the first one or two so much that the threads don't line up (hence the cross-threading advice).
again not specifically the things in the picture but those are where my issues are.
the risers (or stand offs) will not thread onto the nuts at all, what i wan't to know is, is there a special way to put these nuts on? I'm asking this because the nuts do not seem to fit onto the risers.
