Getting ready to install my H100i on my Asus Z87-A motherboard with my I7 4770k. The box includes standoff screws for LGA 1155/1156 and 2011, but doesn't state LGA1150. Which screws should I be using for my install?

Use the 1155 standoffs. All the 115x sockets have the same mounting specs.

Ended up using the 115x leads as was stated, something also worth mentioning was the backing plate doesn't sit flush, I had to buy rubber washers at lowes and use those to mount to the back of the motherboard for the plate to sit flush.

One thing that's very easy to miss is that the X-shaped backplate has to be mounted a certain way. One side has a bit of a cutout on it and that side should go towards the top of the case. Corsair really should have made this more obvious in the manual.
