Couldn't find it on ebay nor amazon.
Nor anything similar (that would fit at the back of a motherboard for a cooler)

It just doesn't feel secure enough for my liking.
When I used to attach "normal coolers" they used to be SUPER tight fitted.

This one was still fitted really tight, but the backplate couldn't cope with metal nuts turning inside it (how dirty does that sound is beyond me lol)

I would thus prefer a metal backplate.
I feel my temps aren't that great in comparison to others I've seen here.

i agree - not crazy about it either - not sure how much tigther it could be - it felt tight enough and i cant screw them anymore -

i did use the antec sticky tape on the back plate as recommended - what would it do if i didnt use them ? would it be a better fit - ?

i know its a pain if you have to remove them - i had to do it once to change the board - and took some time to get it off - its like cement

i guess you can always use your own double sided tape - not as thick - just to keep it from touching the board - i would think thats why its even there -

i cant wait to see my temps with the stock fans biggrin.gif


i am looking to get around 25C idle - at least around there - that woud be a good 10C lower than what i get now -

And yeah it should stick solidly to the board, but that tightening...just gets me.

I can confirm your suspicions. Using the stock Antec back plate will cause your motherboard to warp over time.
This means after a while the pump is not held down with as much pressure.
Why any company would use a flimsy plastic back plate is beyond me.
