CPU cooler bracket doesn't seem to fit my case Tags: Cooler Master Cooling Cases Motherboards CPUs Components Last response: October 18, 2012 12:44 PM in Components Share 3263827 October 18, 2012 12:03:20 PM Case: CM II 690 Advance Motherboard: Asus P8 P67 Deluxe CPU Cooler: Zalman CNPS 14x I've been using a stock intel CPU cooler, however it's begun to vibrate loudly and I'd like to replace it. I bought a Zalman CNPS 14x, however I don't see how I can get it to fit. There is a bracket that goes on the back of the motherboard, however the "window" doesn't line up properly with this motherboard in my case. Here's a picture: http://i.imgur.com/PruE9.jpg Only the top right hole is un-obscured. There is also maybe a 1/4 inch of clearance, so I'm not sure the bracket would even fit between the motherboard and the back mounting. Is this just a bad motherboard that doesn't properly fit this case? Any ideas on how I can overcome this so I can install my new CPU cooler?

You'll just need to unscrew your motherboard and attach the cooler before putting it back in. Backplates are usually pretty slim, so it shouldn't cause any major issues. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
