    Loads of places, google EK-supreme in google shopping then arrange things in accessending order, brackets will be there.


    As for specific shops that will ship to you try performancepcs.com
    also http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/ may help.

    Hey man! How are you doing ? Thank you for helping me once again, performance-pcs.com does ship to Brazil and the best, doesn't charge an arm and leg to do it, just regular usps price! Very nice tip you gave me :toast: :toast: :toast:

    I guess these two will do the job, right ?

    Doesn't ek have an universal mounting plate also ?
    Mine is universal but won't support 1366 neither 1156.... BTW 1366 and 1156 are the same mouting ? I mean, any cooler for 1156 will fit 1366 socket ?!

    LoL! Yeah, I'm kind of low on money for some months, so I stopped buying a little.... :laugh:
    I also end up crashing my two weeks old car last week.... but I'm okay, just a little sad :banghead:
    I bought this water cooler kit from system viper long ago but really never used it, just for test yesterday... Now I'm thinking about putting it on my i5-750.

    for what socket?? 775?? not really. 1366 no but its good to, 1156 yes without one sockets tend to warp and you get memory issues/nb issues.

    Back plates allow you to mount coolers/blocks with much greater pressure as the CPU area is supported from behind the board ( of course) so then the CPU really gets a perfect mount, like a sandwich effect between back of board and heatsink/block XD

    Also they stop motherboards warping, useful if you are using a large tower heatsink as the leverage/weight can and will bend motherboards.

    Sorry to hear about your car dude D: sucks so much.
