My nemesis: the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

Alright so right on time three days later UPS has gotten me all my parts (champion service for the $7)

and I'm in the middle of the assembly, following the instructions in the case manual and the tips from some of the knowledgeable ones here on the HR forum.

I've been taking my time and so far I'm haven't been daunted by anything, until I unpacked this infernal COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus (which I don't doubt is an awesome cooling unit).

The instructions for mounting it are extremely short, and the diagrams you're to follow are very tiny and have left me head-scratching.


I've removed the heatsink mounting hardware that was pre-installed on my motherboard already. And I believe I understand how to install the under-motherboard mounting plate.

But there is an adjustable "prop" mount, I'm calling it, that holds the heat pipes and heat transfer perpendicular to the motherboard. I'm stuck on how to attach that prop mount to the rest of the cooler.

I'm going to follow up with some pictures.

Okay the heat dissipating part on the right will tip up and stand on it's end, make contact with the CPU, and be supported by the "prop" mount on the left.

I don't see a reliable way to attach the two, though, and the instructions are less than clear by a long shot.

That was exactly what I needed to see for it to make sense.
