HP Z210 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've never had this much trouble finding parts for a motherboard, but I bought a Z210 CMT motherboard off eBay and it has been a nightmare finding compatible parts for it.  After buying a Power Supply with the proprietary 18 pin connection and the proprietary CPU cooler, I still can't finish building this computer because neither the Motherboard or the CPU cooler came with a backplate.  Does anyone know where I can find a compatible backplate or aftermarket CPU cooler that would work for this Motherboard?  I'm considering ending my search for parts on this pc and just designing and 3d printing my own parts at this point, but I thought I'd check the HP forms to see if someone has had more luck than me in this endeavor.

Millionairetuba,

 

The CPU's in the z210 are LGA1155.  Is the part you're looking for something like this? :

While the CPU's in the Z210s are LGA155, the mounting hardware is not the standard LGA1155 CPU cooler mounts.  I  have a LGA1155 cool I pulled out of a Dell system and the neither the backplate nor the cooler are compatible with the Z210 motherboard or CPU cooler.

locating and fitting a sandy bridge LGA 1155/1156 socket cpu backplate is rather easy, just make sure that the backplate you get does not cover/short any of the surface mount parts on the bottom of the motherboard
