Hello,

i am trying to install a CM hyper 212 evo on to my MSI tomahawk b450 max motherboard.

I am having a problem when trying to fit the 4 arm metal plate into the screws in the motherboard.

I have an issue where two corners will fit in but then the other two don’t line up correctly.

I have attached a couple of pics of the metal plate without the fan to show you what I mean.

any advice? Cheers

The brackets attach to the cooler block running down the sides of it. Make sure you are using the right ones. They have a YouTube video showing install for intel and amd .
do you have a link to the video? I have no idea why this bracket isn’t fitting.

If it doesn’t fit you need to rotate it 90’

the HS has to be underneath the bracket or you’re wasting your time.

it’s also very likely you have the backplate inverted if you’re having issues
