    I am pretty sure that the 1156 backing is for the 1155 as well. As for it being a bit crooked it should not mater as long as it fastened well and as long as the heatsync of the 110 also connects to the front as it should.

    but how do you tell to the masses that their 1155 bracket can be used for the new socket 1150 ?

    I've checked all the holes they only align with the backplate bent. I was studying every way possible yesterday night Lol.

    You do see in the picture of that back plate that it indeed has several mounting hole pattern? Well that is the answer. I have seen back plate schemes do this for multiple fits in one back plate.
    His kit comes with two back plates and they
    fit Intel LGA 1155 / 1156 / 1366 / 2011
    AMD AM2 / AM3 / FM1 / FM2

    thanks guys ive managed to put everything together, ran auto overclock extreme setting and its picked the cpu upto 4738mhz.

    seems a bit high, do u reckon its safe to leave it at this setting???????

    current cpu temp is 32c on idle.

    i7 3770k @ 4738mhz corsair h110 dual watercooler

    what's the max temps under load?
    Doesn't that case you are using have cable routing? I believe so as it looks like I see cable routing cut outs in-between mobo and front of the case. Why didn't you use them?

    I havnt tested under load yet, how would I test it using prime? whats an ideal temp under full load?

    and the cable job doesn't look as bad in real life its the best I can do lol.


    thanks...thing runs beautifully compared to my q6600
