So, I've been playing around as much as I can without my proc being in yet, which means I've essentially been playing with my motherboard and RAM:shadedshu I've seen it on more i7 setups, but I noticed there's a small backplate on this Gigabyte EX58-UD3r holding the socket clip stuff in place. ...why? I was planning to install a cooler with its own backplate, and now I'm gonna have to choose: - Install the cooler without backplate and go back to push pins... Which I'm a little scary of ever since my cooler went "THUNK" and slipped loose a while ago. - Install the cooler without backplate and simply push the screws through the holes... Sounds to me like a lot of tension on four seperate points. - Install the backplate over the socket plate and hope it fits, which I don't think it will since I've removed about the same thickness on insulation of the backplate to make it fit in the first place - Remove the socket backplate and install the cooler backplate. That means the socket will be loose and the CPU not tightly mounted. Choices, choices... how did other i7 builders fix this?
