ek supreme HF intel backplate.. standoffs?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
i'm coming from an AMD system where no standoffs were needed.. im guessing intel backplates need it because of that socket bracket?

anyway, does anyone have a picture of this or know if i can find it at a local hardware store? is it just a nut or..?

Huh? I have never heard of Intel backplates ever needing standoffs...

Oh god, some people need to stop talking. NOW.
You will just end up making him do a big mistake assembling his block.

Here are the instructions

You can see, that for the 1156/1155/1366 installation (steps 6 or 8), there are small stand-offs you must use in order to connect the back-plate currectly. Else you will bend the motherboard.

If you don't have them, you can email EK and ask if they can tell you the size of the stand-offs and you can get them at any good hardware store (just make sure you get plastic ones, and not metal ones).

Good luck.
