My System Specs

Default Antec Kuhler 620 Backplate

So I just popped this Antec 620 onto my new 3770k and at 4.6ghz @ 1.25v, it's topping out at 95C using a single Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm. Turns out I stripped out the plastic backplate that holds the metal inserts in place and stops me from screwing in the cooler securely. I'm not sure why it was so easy to strip the plastic in the first place or why Antec decided to use a chunk of plastic in such an important part.

Does anybody have any ideas as to what kind of backplate I could replace this with? I've seen references to using 6/32 1.5in screws to bolt it in place but I'm not sure of the details as to how this would work?
