Cooler Master MasterAir MA410M doesn’t fit AM4 board?

boey
 Share

So I was building a PC with a Cooler Master MasterAir MA410M(which according to the website fits AM4) and a Gigabyte B450 AORUS PRO WIFI, but the cooler doesn’t fit the holes on the motherboard? it fits the backplate, but not the motherboard holes. The stock AMD Cooler fits fine so I dont think the motherboard is defective. Help?

is the mounting on the cooler the correct one?

Yeah, read the manual. I used the AM4 bracket. the other Intel bracket doesn’t fit the holes by a huge margin.

the manual does show two metal bars mounted to the cooler before going on the stands (legs of the backplate), are those on the correct orientation (i.e. parallel to the fin stack)?

maybe the cooler's flawed then. That's the first time I've heard of coolers not fitting to their mounting hardware.

Are you you're positioning the screws properly on the backplate? The slot covers both AM4 / AM3 mounting holes.

Can you post a photo of the backplate on the motherboard?

I’m going through the same thing right now. I’m building on an X470 Gaming Pro Carbon. The CoolerMaster MasterAir MA410M does not fit the motherboard. It says it supports AM4, but none of the holes align properly. Went through the steps multiple times and I get the same result.

You're using the AM3 holes and not AM4.

See that’s what I had though, but I moved the screws to the other side as well, and it still doesn’t fit. 

Ok, looking at it, does anyone know how to move the screws on the bracket? I’m able to move the motherboard backplate screws, but these seem to be snug in their spot

Can you post a photo of that? Looking at the photo you posted, the holes you weren't using are right above the ones on the motherboard.

That’s both sides. After moving the screws, one side will fit perfectly, but the other side isn’t even close

The indent in the brackets should be facing outwards and not inwards.

So I should flip the brackets around and try again?

Well, I gave up on mine since I realised that the rubber copper pipe ‘covers’ on the top were 1mm too tall for my NZXT H500, so I returned it to the shop in exchange for a Corsair H100i Pro and just paid the balance. Needless to say it was a much more pleasant experience installing it than the cooler master fan.
