You could always improvise with your own small mods like using your own bolts to do this. Or you could cut 4 strips of metal out for backplate, drill the holes at the right places and bolt it through.

forgot to update this.. i think this will work.
after i stopped being a dumb-ass and realized the 1366 backplate i have with the true was flat rather than beveled in at the center like the 775 backplate i'm sure it will straddle that no problem. the 1156 is flat too.
just had a bit of a brain fart, lol.

Nice! I've been trying to get mine up to 4.2 but so far no luck :( What other settings are you running in your BIOS?

at 4.0 it will run with 1.33750v, did 4 hours of prime and 2 of occt. but at 4.2 it went for about 3 1/2 hours in prime with 1.4v in bios, then froze so i put it back to 4.0 and 1.33750 to play a bit of bfbc2. i'm just about to try another 4.2 run in prime with 1.40625v.

Ya I don't really use P95 anymore cause like you said it can go fine for hours but still not be stable. I just use Burn Test and then maybe do some gaming and folding and that'll pretty much tell you if it's stable or not. Apparently Linx is the program to use now too, but I havent used that yet. So are you just changing vcore or are you changing VTT and PPL voltages?
