Need to know why I cant get this to work. Even wathced a youtube video on nhow to do it and it still wont work. I am trying to use it with a Q6600 that I know works. but I just installed the backplate to the underneath of the board, then attached the mounting plate to the HSF and the top of the board. Turned it on and NOTHING. No video at all. Fans ALL whir up and run, but no pic. Any idea why it wont work??

If you pull it OFF and reinstall the stock cooler, does the system post? You can do this out of the case so once you know the system still posts, then you can reinstall the 212.

Those coolers are not the easiest things to install however their performance is excellent. There is an alignment pin that must fit correctly for the cooler to work. If you are not careful, it is possible to install the cooler with this not aligned correctly.

THanks CRJ and Cody, I always will appreciate BOTH of yours' help!! :) HEres the 411, We bought a PC with a Q6600 and used the cooler from MY PC, WHich I believe is a stock 775 65 WATT cooler for my Core 2 Duo. It ran fine and kept temps high tho around 54C on desktop. So Rob recommended me this BEAST cooloer master 212. We got it and installed it wrong first time apparently, then wathced a youtube video and installed it correctly. But neither times has the system gave video, except for when I used MY C2D cooler but just ran lil warm. Did we fry the Quad?? :'(

You may have damaged the socket on the board, bent a pin, etc. This is why you should pull the board and do a bench test with the old cooler installed. If it does not post on the bench with the old cooler, then you broke something when installing the 212 cooler.

Just so I understand; the board works with the core2 however not with the q6600. Is that correct?

Post the exact mb you are using. There may be some problem with the board/cpu.

Just a guess however I would think that some part of the 212 is contacting something on the board causing a no post condition. The 212 series coolers are excellent however they are very large and you do have to be careful fitting them to the board.

Some things to check;
1 Cooler hitting the top of the ram chip so that it does not fit correctly in the ram slot and or not fitting "Square" on cpu.
2 Cooler heat pipe hitting a capacitor, VR, etc making it short or other problem
3 Cooler not contacting cpu with a minimum of 15lb clamping force. Less than this amount of force and the cpu overheats in seconds.

im pretty sure its got the clamping force needed as it was as tight as screws would go and then some.

HSF is not touching any RAM.

Pretty sure no CAPS or anything else is in the way either.

We ran the cooler vertical with the fan going vertical (as in the fan is going sort of top to bottom direction parallel to the case)

It does spin a hair or 2 when its clamped down but we did make sure the retention pin was correct as well as we cannot see any of the CPU from around the base of the HSF. It appears perfectly aligned.

SIGHS lots of work for this cooler, I hope its as good as they say LOL

THanks CRJ for your help :)

I'm wondering if there's a short on the back of the board from the mounting plate.

See if the back plate covers the spot where anything is mounted on the back or place a thin piece of card board between it and the board.

What motherboard do you have?

You mean if theres like a spot where a CAP or anything is soldered underneath idf the plate is touching it or anything?? Well answer this please...Am I supposed to place the backplate on the underneath of the MoBo with the green "thermal" tape facing the board or facing away from it?? is the picture I posted the part that should be facing the MoBo or away from the Mobo??
