Don't remember seeing that metal plate on the back of the board but my H50 mount went on no problem?

anyone know of a good heatsink with pushpins instead of a backplate for 1156 socket?

edit* i just ordered a vendetta 2, since this board has 775 mounting holes it should work with pushpins till i find something to mount my true 120.

Did you at least try to mount your True on there first?
