Intel MB or on an Intel HS FAN
Here's a Intel MB ... no HS Fan backplate there and there's no accessory part either.
Only time I see a backplate is on a MB with an oversized aftermarket HS Fan.
As a hardware noobie constantly trying to accumulate knowledge, I have question,..
I was thinking about upgrading from the stock CPU heatsink on 775 mobo. I know that most modern heatsinks require a brace/baseplate to be put behind the socket for the heatsink to screw in. Because all 775 heatsinks use the same screw positioning/size, couldn't I just use the stock Intel brace and just swap out the heatsink?
