oh yea, you got the mounting kit from me too huh?
well, there are instructions on how to use the mounting kit. though the only problem i see with it is that you'll need to shorten those rods as i know that they're too long.
you just gotta use the washers and nuts to connect them directly to the mobo. BUT if you do have a backplate, you might be better off getting some shorter screws and screwing it directly into the backplate instead as thats what most of them did... let me find the pictures that another member did using that mounting kit.
EDIT: here are pictures from iandroo
and some notes:
for future reference for other buyers of your bracket. it is screwed onto the heatsink by the stock screws for the LGA775 push-down lock bracket. the screws for the w/c'ing kit you supply is about 1" or so too long. needs to be cut.
it was kind of a butt to install the thing. the nut inbetween the bracket and the mobo keeps coming loose.
oh also, the screws you included do NOT fit the am2 backplate so it wasnt used. it was installed by nut washer - mobo - washer nut - bracket - spring washer gold nut.Edited by nafljhy - 7/14/09 at 12:58pm
