help installing thermalright venomous x rt on core i7 2600k

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Stupidly I did not look this up before tearing my rig apart. Does anyone know if I need to use the socket 775 backplate cap when I put this on my 1155? I think the answer is no but the directions are not clear. Thanks for helping me with my retarded problem

Hmm, the answer was pretty clear on the chart for me: That cap is ONLY for socket 775. So if you're on a different socket, you remove that black cap thingy.

i thought there was one backplate that was universial thats what my old one had, i thought.

The backplate *IS* universal.
The black cap is some special covering due to extra parts on the socket 775 platform, that don't exist on the newer platforms. Notice socket 775 doesn't have a metal brace and has some nice guts directly behind the processor. The cap has to cover that stuff.

Thanks for the responses. I was already fairly sure but I didn't know if it would be risky to boot up without a solid answer.
