My System Specs


This thread is a little confusing (at least to me) so I thought I'd offer some help as I have the R4E and presently have an H100 installed on it.

You want to use the the back plate that came installed on the board. The other one is for compatibility with 1366 mounting, do not use it!. The H100 instructions are not entirely clear, but you need to use the 2011 pegs included: they are the ones that have two different thread types and length as opposed to the regular Intel ones which are the same threads on both ends of the peg.

In step three of the Intel guide KaptCrunch posted you'll see the 2011 pegs sort of pictured, those are all you need to install the H100. Ignore the pic in step two- use the back plate already on the board
