If I was you I'd get a Xigmatek S1283 or OCZ Vendetta 2, and get the "crossbow" backplate. The new version is dual 775 / i7 (one side is 775 the other i7, w/ holes for both 775 and i7 on the arms). Fairly cheap upgrade which will do you long into your i7 rebuild :) - Buy Xigmatek ACK-I7361 Crossbow Mounting Kit LGA1366 775 for HDT-S963 HDT-S1283 RS-S1283 - ACK-I7361 In Canada. - Buy Xigmatek HDT-S1283 Direct Touch 3 Heatpipe Heatsink AM2 LGA775 S754 S939 S940 W 120MM PWM Fan - HDT-S1283 In Canada. - Buy OCZ Vendetta 2 Triple Heatpipe CPU Heatsink AM2 LGA775 S939 S940 S754 120MM Fan 800-1500RPM 20-32DBA - OCZTVEND2 In Canada.

If you want to go "whole hog" get the Xigmatek and TWO NF-P12s or Scythe E/Fs and ghetto mount the fans with zip ties ;)

Just my $.02...YMMV, etc. etc :)
