Default Zalman CNPS9900 CPU Cooler

Hello I ran into this issue when I'm installing this cooler onto the 1366 socket. the installation requries no backboard, and while I'm installing the Clip Support I noticed the support is not tightly fit on to the board even with the screw done up tightly and can't not be turned anymore without excessive force. so currently I have a Clip support that is rattleing on the mobo and I don't think its how its suppose to sit. Can someone provid me with some help.

I'm using a P6x58D Premium motherboard.

Thanks

Yeah thats what I ment, I'm using washer provided by Zalman but loks like I still got about 3-4mm to go. Since this is my first build I didn't know what to expect, what kind of washer should I be getting?

I imagin this is nothing unsual correct? Since not all the board are the same.

Thanks
