Question Motherboard Backplates

In building this Beast of mine I found yet another area I'd love to mod anyone know we're I can find Lga 2011 Backplates for cpu.

I want a stronger then oem provided one and plan to toss heatsinks and a fan on this sucker.

But few Google searchs turned up no real info on buying custom ones or manufactured ones. Anyone know of place that may carry such things.

Most after market coolers will come with a backplate of some form. If not you can always pick up the least expensive after market cooler that comes with one and just use the backplate.....

What's wrong with the huge backplate that Intel specs for every 2011 board? I doubt that anyone has bent or damaged a 2011 board due to large heat sinks so why the need to change it?

AFAIK your not supposed to remove it. Even the Heatkiller backplate for my block went over top of the Intel backplate. Pretty sure it holds the socket retention piece in-place.

For someone to go through that much trouble and to have push pull etc etc he's using AS5 compound which is worse than the best for temps by ~4-8c.. Just find it funny that all the attention to detail, work and money spent and they don't use the best (or even best bang for buck) thermal compound.

Once I get to this point it will be to just prolong the system and means it's running. I'll be looking digging up best thermal grease I can find.
