Default New CPU Block required

So, turns out that my Apogee GTX will not work on my brand new Rampage Extreme so I need a new block. It mush have a "hollow" type of backplate.

Any suggestions? Looking for something preferablle in stock, and shipping from Canada. If anyone lives in Calgary, and has one theey would like to sell, I would trade my GTX + Cash for one (Depending)

Thanks,

What do you mean by hollow? A picture or link explaining the issue more in depth would be helpful for those of us not appraised of the issue.

Sorry,

Right behind the CPU Socket (On the back of the board) there is a Fujitsu Chip (I think for power conditioning) that gets in the way of a solid backplate, on some the backplates the centre is cut out,

I will grab a link quickly to the review on here (That shows it)

I would just whip out my dremel and cut a hole myself. File the Edge then throw some C-channel molding on and call it a day.

I ended up using my Boreas backplate, BUT I had to remove the plastic standoffs. This is good/bad as I can adjust contact pressure as I need to. Bad side is I could damage my CPU

I will just see how it turns out
