    Hi All

    Busy putting my new machine together and just reading the intallation guide for the TTBT and it states there are 2 mounting proceedures for those with a metal backplate and those with a plastic backplate (such as ASUS motherboards) but I notice that the A8N32-SLi has a metal backplate. Just wondering if anyone has this combination what method they used to mount the heatsink. Should I remove the backplate and use the TTBT mounting mechanism or should I just leave the backplate and screw the heatsink into that? Any help is appreciated.

    Isnt the backplate stuck on with sticky foam stuff?
    I would say m8 if the new cooler will work without taking the plate of then leave well alone.

    I removed the MB back plate and used the one supplied with the BT, works great but's fiddly bolting it up.

    I simply used the one that was on my motherboard although UI have connected it differently to instructions supplied. Currently on 26c at 280x10 which is pretty amazing.
