i just googled around and didn't see anything at all. looks like you might have to go for the retail....

or buy a used one that includes all the parts and lap it if you can find a really good deal on one.

You are in luck!!! Every BT comes with two of the brackets, and you only need one. So just find someone that has the spare still lying around and get it from them. Although that kinda takes the sweetness out of the deal.

yea i searched for mounting hardware, brackets, accessories, couldnt find jack..since it comes with 4 brackets for 4 different types of sockets, try to find a bracket here forsale that someone didnt use, or to make it easier, just get retail.

No, all the brackets are the same. The black pieces are just cardboard, and the metal pieces are exactly the same, just there's two of them. My friend bought a BT and I installed it for him so I know.

That's odd... I looked at your FAQ and it's totally different than my experience. I didn't even do anything on the back of the board with his. I just put the heatsink on the cpu, put 1 H bracket on that, and screwed it in. Maybe intel needs both? That would explain it. He had an opteron.

lol, i have no idea why they would sell a refurbished item without the mounting brackets, naturally you would want to mount it on your cpu. idiots.

it's worth it to get the retail...might want to pick up a better fan too...the silverstone 110 cfm fan is good as well

btw, you should use both mounting brackets to secure the heatsink properly...so it's worth the extra 10 bucks


enjoy!

It does state the missing parts. It's in red text as you look at the pictures. I think it's also in there somewhere as you place an order with refurbished parts.

My FAQ described how I did it was an Opty 144 and a DFI Lanparty. It's not the conventional way, but it worked.

I just installed a Big Typhoon tonight on one of the rigs I built today with a AMD 3700. It comes with 4 total metal brackets. If your motherboard uses a tall backplate (which his did), you only use 1 total bracket for socket 939. He has 3 brackets left, so if anyone is in the same situation, let me know. Btw, I've got to mention that I was not prepared for how SILENT this thing is. I was totally blown away! What an awesome piece of equipment. I used a Fortron psu and a video card that only uses a heatsink (no fan) and his computer was nearly silent. I was really, really impressed with how quiet both the Fortron psu and the Big Typhoon were. I'll be using both a lot more frequently now. I'd also like to mention to anyone reading this that Western Digital has fixed the Sata connector problem that many have. They are now shipping a "locking bracket" with the Raptors. (at least the 74 gb version)
