You guys do realize that when you add a washer to the mounting bolts its going to crush the bottom of those plastic pieces that the bolts go through into the mobo. Trust me I know I actually took those plastic pieces off and ground them down so when I tighten the bolts down they have more room to tighten down before they bottom out and hit the mobo. The mounting ring is such weak metal it just bends under pressure so your not exactly exerting all that much more pressure to the pump. I wish it came with a more ridged mounting ring but I'm sure if it did someone would over tighten it and crack the plastic pump.


Edit: You can't tighten the bolts too tight when you use the garbage plastic backplate that comes with it either. You will end up spinning the threaded piece right in the plastic backplate. Ask me how I know lol

makes me glad my board came with a proper metal backplate with no limit on how far the screws can go in. Also I made sure I wasnt crushing the plastic grommet.

Question. I'm planning on doing the following this weekend:

1. Switching from using the stock plastic H50 backplate to my old TRUE's metal LGA775 backplate. Would using the tighter-spaced LGA775 holes make a difference when it comes to pressure on the CPU for a tighter mount?

2. Lapping my H50. I've come to the conclusion that my H50 isn't flat at all, based on how fast my temps rise, and how my TIM spreads so unevenly despite using proper mounting techniques. I'll check with a metal ruler first to be sure. I mean, it doesn't void my warranty anyway, so what's to lose, right?

Thoughts guys?

If you are running a socket 1366 cpu I'd think you'd need a 1366 backplate. 775 backplate wouldn't match mobo holes. Need something like: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/hk1366plate.html

No, nothing to lose by lapping done properly.
