But I just got it so doesn't it include everything for 1155 now? The instruction manual mentions nothing about a backplate. Just clip and clip support.

see the note on zalman look like you got the old plate the zm-cs5b also use for the 1155 and 1156 there is a new one zm-cs5a and the other for 1366 zm-cs4a ,then you will be able to use it on a 1155

I'm so confused and stressed out. Why does it mention nothing about a backplate.

Will the washers/nuts do the job? Only thing that's killing me, is how you put em on....

You can set the washers on top of the nuts and lay them out correctly to place the mobo on, but the washers will likely slide off the nuts while trying to rest the mobo, or the nuts will get moved a bit out of alignment...

I don't know. they don't seem to be thinner than the motherboard standoffs in the case.


Avira seems to think the link from the how to install has malware in it. So I'm reluctant to check it out.

do you have a opening in the case of you board try to put the washer and the nut maybe you wiil have to remove the board from the system to install the cooler bracket ,they have to be shorter then the standoffs post for not touching the case and made ground this is a false positive from avira

That was pointless. The stupid how to install is using the old product that came with a backplate instead of washers/nuts...

So, I basically lay the nut/washer next to a standoff and find out? What if it looks almost even? Should I just Get a different cooler? Still like to figure out how to install them. Not simple like a backplate.

For a note, I haven't put the motherboard in the case yet, if you meant a cutout of the case for accessing the back of the mobo.

People that did say the fan hanged over a memory slot said they just raised the fan to solve the issue. I been trying to find out how it's done but I haven't seen any details or videos on it.
