Default Help with Zalman Mounting

I'm having trouble getting my zalman 9500 on my p5b delux. I seams like the mounting bracet doesnt make it far enough down to screw in and the cpu cooler is wiggling. What have I done wrong? please help.

hmmm....i didn't have any trouble putting my 9500 on my p5b-deluxe. Are you saying the support bracket isn't tall enough or wide enough to fit?

Its been awhile since i set myn up, but there should be two support brackets. One that goes behind the mobo and one on top that the brace, that holds the 9500 down, will screw into. And then four screws that hold the two brackets together and two screws that hold the brace down. I think thats it.
