    Hey, back in '09 I had an ASUS P5Q3 with a Titan Fenrir TTC-NK85TZ cooling an Intel E8500, did the job amazingly, the fitting was relatively easy, install backplate, install mounting stands, then place the giant on using the bracket and put on the knobs, easy job. But now I have an ASUS P7P55D PRO motherboard and its 1156 with an i5 750 (Great btw). Titan recently update the Fenrir by releasing it with an 1156 bracket, that's cool, but there is no backplate for the 1156? The bracket can be bought separately, but there is no backplate sold? I know its possible to mount it without a backplate by just using the mounting stand screwed through the mobo, but surely the heatsink's weight might tear the socket from the board? I want to know your thoughts on whether it would be safe to mount it with no backplate.

    From what I've read it doesn't have or require a backplate, it simply screws together.

    So you think the motherboard will support the heatsink by its own? With no risk of bending?

    Would it be plausible to use another companies backplate, because they don't really differ much because they all have the same hole distance. Correct?

    Possibly, but why. If thats the design then I'm sure its been tested and verified as being fine.

    What I can understand from chaz is that his titan fenrir was made for a socket 775 motherboard. He doesnt have a 1156 cpu braket but titan have started selling their new fenrir (same make and model) with a 1156 braket. He can't get hold of one.

    I believe he has or can get the bracket as thats available readily, its about a back plate that he has a question, and there is no backplate available.

    Well Jack, as I told you at school, I had one coming in the post, but City Link ("C" should be "Sh") had to wait till today to deliver because they HAVE to have a signature not a note with a signature like most (saying where to put it). Anyway, I put it in according to the instructions that came with it. And it was a success, the new temps with the new overclock, 191Mhz x 21.
