    Looks to me based on your photos, like the smaller diameter backplate mount ( https://ibb.co/YhLmfXg ) is Not going into the MB mounting hole  -like it should

    Yes.

    Did you actually try mounting the cooler, or are you just seeing this with only the screws installed without the cooler mounted? I believe when I installed my clc 280 it was the same way until I actually mounted the cooler. With only the screws installed to the backplate the backplate wasn’t tight like you said, but once I mounted the cooler everything was nice and tight.

    I haven't tried mounting the actual cooler itself yet. Because it just does not feel okay :) the backplate should stay there tight without the cooler am i wrong? the gap is very obvious by the way. i will post a video showing that.

    I thought it was suppose to stay tight as well, but mine was loose too, but after mounting the cooler there was no movement.

    Mounting the cooler/pump should pull tension on the standoffs/backplate and things should pull together nicely, as Sajin said..If after mounting the cooler/pump it's still loose, then there's another problem..My backplate was loose too until I installed/tightened down the cooler/pump.

    It's the retention ring that will apply spring pressure to the standoffs/backplate and pull it all together..Make sure the backplate is through all the mobo holes before snugging the screw nuts for the retention ring down..Put it all together like it's supposed to be and roll from there.
