Ummm...are you sure the cooler is s1155 compatible? I've yet to see one.

Any cooler that fits 1156 will fit 1155.

According to several articles the heatsink mounting holes for the brand new SandyBridge 1155 cpu's are identical to the mounting holes for the Intel 1156 cpu's. Intel did not move the mounting holes because heatsink manufacturers were complaining about all the changes they had to make with each new socket.

I have an original Hyper 212, not the newer Hyper 212+. It is pretty much ancient history but cooling is still outstanding. When I built my Intel Core i7 860 system I had to purchase a new 1155 mounting bracket for the heatsink. The original did not have a universal mounting bracket.

If you have a new Hyper 212+, then it should have come with a universal mounting bracket. Here is a link to a video clip at newegg.com that shows how to install the Hyper 212+

I am having the same problem, the screws are now all in but cant tighten all of them. It was a pain in the rear to do this.

can i restart? will i need to reapply compound?

zondo - Did you watch the installation video I linked to in my previous post? It shows how to adjust the universal bracket and adjust the screws so they match the mounting holes in the motherboard.
