Corsair H100i & ASUS Formula VI

Hey all,
Trying to install the backing plate for this and when I do, it is very very loose. When I screw the standoffs all the way in, the bracket is still loose.
Yes, I am using the correct standoffs (got it wrong to start).
Any ideas please?

I have done some internet searching but nothing cam eto light.

Thanks...

I had a Corsair AIO with the exact same problem. I think all of the units have this issue (if it is an issue). I dont know if Corsair have rectified this but i noticed that it does not provide enough and unequal mounting pressure. I just put plastic washers between the motherboard and backplate with satisfying results. Gave me better and more equal mounting pressure and knocked a couple degrees of my CPU aswell. Make sure to use non conductive washers such as plastic or rubber.

If you already haven't. Put the block on (maybe you haven't already because the looseness of the backplate is scaring you), tighten it up and the back plate will tighten up.

Had 2 friends ring me on the same day within the same hour with the same issue, they put the backplate on and stopped installing the cooler because they was a bit unsure, they put the block on like I told them and wallah

YUP, theDTP hit the nail right on the head. I had the same and it tightened up just fine.

Yup, should be fine. But for some odd reason it's not securing the pump properly, let me know right away

i believe this is due to the different thicknesses of the motherboards. some are thin
you'll have some "standard" thickness boards and then there some that are extra
thick (multi-layer PCB ), depending on "options" of the motherboard.

I would not think the premium ASUS boards would be too thin!

Maybe...

its not that it is thin (rather is normal thickness) the giggy UD7 is thick with
no slack in the mount.
