    DG45ID users: Anyone using a CPU HSF backplate on this board?

    pbngem

      Anyone using a CPU heatsink/fan with a backplate support on this board?  I am wanting to install a heatsink fan that uses spring loaded screws with a backplate support that will minimize board flex & provide a more sucure mounting. I installed the intel HSF that came w supplied with the E8600 processor & it places a great deal of flex on this board. My concern is if the backplate will interere any solder joints/ components on the backside of the board. I have not found any conclusive info on this at the intel website support. Any input is appreciated
