I have everything ready but I can't seem to attach the cpu cooler. The CPU slid on nicely but the cooler does attach. I put on one clip and the second can't reach the other plastic part (plastic is too short).
This is my first build so I'm probably missing something but it is really making me mad and I can't figure this out.
Just make sure it's lined up straight with the plastic tabs on the motherboard retention bracket (black plastic thing with screws in it)... it can be off to one side even if you already secured one of the latches to one of the plastic tabs.
gotta be lined up pretty much perfect otherwise it will be like half a mm out and wont reach
as a last resort you could unscrew a few screws on the retention bracket and see if it helps
