My System Specs


Nice Build. I was never a fan of the Asetek holddown/backplate system that is used on the Krakens, Zalmans of this world. Primarily it was because the little nuts in the plastic backplate would come loose and spin around inside their plastic housing, and then they were a bitch to get off.

Does the X79 board use it's own backplate for almost all solutions?
