    Ok I bought the Zalman Heatsink CNPS7000-AlCu and I have a problem my Gigabyte Motherboard (Socket 939) has the plastic screws which I took out along with the frame but the Brass Nipples do not fit into the backplane that came with the motherboard which I need to do to attach the heatsink.

    I can't believe that the heatsink does not come with its own backplane.

    Anyone have any suggestions on what to do.

    Are you sure that it doesn't have a backplate. I have the CNPS7000B-AlCu on a Abit KV8 socket 754 (instructions and parts are the same for both 754 and 939) and it came with a backpate and I installed it with no issues. The parts list also lists one. I would think the stock backplate would work too since mine almost looks the same as the one zalman gave me. Maybe they accidently left it out. Here is the parts list for that heatsink.

    Hope you can get it running it is a great heatsink, does a great job of cooling and makes no noise. I have one for my cpu and their vga silencer for my geforce 6600gt agp. Though the vga cooler was a pain to get installed.

    One other thing when you get it working make sure to turn off cpu fan speed monitoring in the bios. Otherwise the board may think you have no fan, and sound a really annoying alarm.
