On my A8N-SLI premium board. This is a little lazy of me to ask. But would anyone know if this MB has a metal back plate for the CPU? if it does it will be easier for me to install this cooler. Otherwise i need to take the MB out i guess. It seems to have a metal plate from the sound of it rattling around.

Hi rungel,

I would suggest you use whatever backplate Thermaltake gave you because motherboards have a weight tolerance as to how heavy a cpu fan can be. The suggested weight for my motherboard for example is 450g and if I were to use the Big Typhoon, it exceeds that weight and I can not be able to use it. Your going to have to use the backplate they gave you unless the instructions say you odn't need to because I know AMD installations are much easier than installing it with P4's . Hope this helps!!
