I had a Tuniq Tower last year and its mounting bracket was just like that.

478 backplate?
You'll have to make one with some wood or something tongue.gif

It's not the backplate I need, there are stand-offs there, I need the 'H' plate smile.gif

But can't you remove those?
You don't even need a backplate if you put some kind of rubber thing to help the ziptie buckle press against the back of the board.

Why would I remove them? All I need is an 'H' bracket then I can use a long screw.

Cause it's easier fitting the cooler with zipties? No need to look for odd brackets...

The problem is, you can't put a ziptie through a stand-off xD
