I have purchase the MCX-VPro for the tyan i5000xt. that's a socket 771, intel xeon cpu. i am unable to install this thing properly. after i mount it to the motherboard it does not touch the cpu. this couses the temperature to rise and thus my pc shutsdown.

Is it mounted thru from the backside of the board? Maybe space the backing plate with washers to get better reach?

Firstly, before you do some damage, DON'T fire up that PC, or you might kill the CPU...

The cooler might of came with various different ways to attach it...
Is this what we're talking about?

The back plate goes in behind the board, correct? Those spacer tubes might be too long for this application.
Was this cooler intended for this CPU/socket?

You might have to shorten or remove those spacer altogether, BUT when you go to mount the cooler without them, PLEASE make sure you tighten it down evenly and slowly!
