LGA1366 bolt-thru-kit issues

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello I own a Thermalright Ultra-120 heatsink with a 1366 retention kit. just recently I bought an Asus Sabertooth x58 motherboard (1366 socket) but the retention kit I own (LGA1366 mounting kit with four spring screws) is just a bit smaller and will not fit on my new motherboard. I want to keep the Thermalright Ultra-120 and wanted to know if anyone knows of a retention kit i could purchase that will fit on both the Sabertooth x58 and the Thermalright Ultra-120. I was looking at the other accessories via the Thermalright website and came across the AXP-LGA1366 Bolt-Thru-Kit and LGA1366 Bolt-Thru-Kit Rev.B. It seems that the AXP-LGA1366 Bolt-Thru-Kit is the best solution for my problem, but since the website does not have the exact length of the kit's peices, there is no sure way of knowing that those kits will fit either. I figured since the motherboard was a 1366 socket, any retention kit made for a 1366 would fit frown.gif Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Thanks for the response. Im beginning to think I don't own a 1366 kit. Does this look correct to you? I know it seems extreme, and I wouldn't want you to open your case just to see, but do these seem like legitimate lengths for a 1366 back plate? It doesnt fit on the motherboard and i'de hate to think my motherboard was manufactured incorrectly.

1366 measures just 4-15/32" diagonal and 3" square center to center of holes. wink.gif

That looks like a 775 backplate. The 1366 backplate that i have is more rigid looking with a square cut out in the middle.

After extensive research over the internet, i have not found a 1366 kit that looked just like mine. Only came across the 775 backplate and from that point i realized the guy i bought the heatsink from probably didnt know or realize which kit he gave me. I was getting worried thinking that my motherboard was defective smile.gif Thanks for the help doyll for the measurements and Mikecdm for the pic. Guess i will buy a real 1366 bolt-thru-kit and take it from there thumb.gif
