Swiftech backplate on Stinger?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Swiftech has a backplate for their CPU waterblocks. Know I know that a Apogee is a little different from a Stinger V6. However, they both have to use the same mounting holes... (LGA775) So do you guys think it will work?

I think so, it seems like backplates are specific to the mount and MB compatibility as long as the bolts are long enough to account for the extra thickness it should work.

I added this one to my 680i

and fuzion which worked fine.

Only trick with the 680i is there was one resistor that could get squished so I had to drill a small clearance hole in the backplate.

But the fuzion had plenty long bolts and worked just fine. It only adds maybe 1/8" in thickness need to the bolt length. The backplate was well worth it IMO, in piece of mind if anything else...I like alot of pressure on mine.

Yeah, the Swifty backplate works with Stinger hardware. If you have the older brass hardware it
may require drilling the backplate holes to size. I only use backplates with naked cores.

I see no reason you can't Paul, however on the earlier models I was using 8-32 studs but switched to 6-32 after some complaints about them being too tight in the mobo holes. If your studs are brass they are 8-32. If you need 6-32 hardware I will send it to you N/C.
