I just bought a HR-02 Macho for use with my Asus P8Z68-V without completely reading through all the documents on Thermalrights website. Upon trying to mount it on the motherboard, I noticed that there is a metal plate already mounted where the cooler backplate is supposed to be, which makes it impossible to use the cooler. There is apparantly a special backplate that works on the Asus motherboards, but since Thermalright does not seem to be answering my email, I have had no luck in getting hold of one. So my questions:
- Does anyone know where to get hold of the HR-02 Macho Asus specific backplate?
- Is there any other way of solving the problem? I read somewhere that some user had solved the problem on a P8Z68-V Pro by removing the plate from the motherboard, but to me it looks like this is what keeps the cpu socket mount affixed to the motherboard.
