Default Help for making custom back plates.

Hi peeps,

I am gonna be installing my new CPU heat sink and new MOSFET heat sink.

I have a back plate for the CPU heat sink but, my MOSFET heat sink uses push pins and I want to make a back plate for it.

If you guys got any suggestions, advice, guides/instructions or recommended places for materials... post away, I am all ears.

I got the plate made today and got a bicycle tire tube that I will cut up to use as a cushion between the plate and board. I got the right screws but I am gonna return them as I found the perfect ones that will suit my needs even better.

I' m just gonna have to be patient as my work leaves me little time for this stuff during the week.

Thanks jdrom17.
