hey i just reinstalled my kuhler 620 on my 3570k and ASRock extreme4. the first time i did it, i stripped one of the backplate hole things(which align and hold the retention nuts into place). this go around i ended up stripping the plastic on all of them. i didnt feel like it was getting very tight, even with needle nose pliars to keep the nuts from spinning. does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this or where i could get a new backplate(preferably not plastic). im not getting the same temps i was before, even tho i switched from AS ceramic to AS 5, and the ceramic didnt even have time to set up.
In the mean time im going to re-apply the thermal paste and see what happens. i think i smeared alot of it off trying to wrestle the water block on. thanks in advance for any suggestions

I would email Antec, I don't think anyone else uses those type of hardware.

I replaced the Antec backing plate with the ASRock one. Yes back to stock backing plate .
i have 4 #6-32 screws that reach thru from back to front about 1 inch so they are inch and a quarter long
3+mm long about
thence i spun a #6-32 nut down each one as a jam nut- tight but not so tight as to strip them.
i have 4 #6-32 brass finger nuts that fit.. extras left over from my RepRap Prusa project.
much nicer than wing nuts .
so i used them to mount the pump/heatsink thingy on my mother board.
tight but not too tight .
i guess we are lucky that British Standard Whitworth (BSW) is not what ASRock used. biggrin.gif

I did basically the same thing. I trashed the stock Antec backplate, (it's total garbage anyway), and used the stock backplate that came with my mobo. Just put some 6/32 screws into it and used wingnuts to hold down the pump. Works like a champ.
Much better clamping pressure too.

I'm not a fan of the antec backplate I must say.
post #3027 of 6068
thanks for the suggestion guys, i see what you mean, and that would be an effective solution for an AMD mobo. I'm currently running an Intel setup tho (no backplate to be had except the one i got from antec). So im wondering if anyone knows where i might find a LGA 1155 generic backplate or preferably something that is actually compatable with the antec kuhler.
thanks again

Well the intel backplate isn't bad - as you'll be able to see form my guide - but I wish it was little more sturdy.
As for your question - I would also like to know smile.gif

i did not need the antec backplate, the antec fastening screws worked fine in the rampage iv x socket. I heard the anteck backplate is fine but just don't use the adheasive strips.

oh that's interesting!
Makes me tempted to buy it - except in the UK.

Anyone have pics or proof that this backplate works?
