 Post subject: ASUS Z170-A: Backplate does not fit (Swiftech)

Hey all, I finally took the plunge and upgraded my Core 2 Quad system to Skylake. Or so I thought...

I have this waterblock:
http://www.swiftech.com/apogeext.aspx

This backplate:
http://www.swiftech.com/Socket1155BP.aspx

Trying to fit it to this motherboard:
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-A/

However, the backplate simply will not fit. I can get two of the four taps into the motherboard holes, but then the remaining are about half a millimetre off. Applying a moderate amount of force doesn't help. I haven't tried attaching the waterblock, I guess I'll damage the motherboard if the backplate isn't seated correctly?

Tips would be appreciated, as I'd rather not have to go back to my old P5K motherboard. I guess the white pads on the backplate should not be removed? Would a different backplate work or does it have to be this model?

Thank you for reading.

The LGA 1151 is the same as all other LGA115X socket. The back pate have a natch that have to match the screw on the back of the socket. Make sure this is been line up correctly.

I'm assuming by now you've gotten this figured out. The backplate you had is designed for the 1155/1156 socket. Skylake is 1151.

All LGA 115X socket are the same.
