Default Xigmatek HDT-S1283 Direct Touch 3 Heatpipe Heatsink LGA775

I will include a backing plate that I got for this heatsink, since the original push-in plstic pins were way too weak (and cheap quality) to hold everything together tightly and securely.

The backing (retention) plate comes with 4 bolts each with a spring. Installation is therefore MUCH easier and worry-free: Align the heatsink to the CPU (after putting thermal paste on the CPU), slightly screw in each bolt (in a cross- X pattern), and then tighten with that same Cross-X pattern, so for example 1-4-2-3, tightening only the two opposites first and then the two other opposites. Then attach the fan to the heatsink, and you are done.

This heatsink is really big in size, please make sure it fits your motherboard and you have enough clearance. It worked like a charm on my Asus PQ5 Pro without touching the RAM.
I am asking $30 shipped to anywhere in Canada. If you saw the other thread it was $25 shipped, but I added $5 for the backing plate kit (it was purchsed I believe at $11 or so seperately at the time). EMT or paypal accepted.
