Default A guide to improvised mounting of Prometia and Vapochill on AMD A64/FX51

In due time cpu kits will be offered from both nVentiv and Asetek for the the AMD A64/FX51 mb's.
But for those of us that don't want to wait, we must improvise !

Yes, actually it comes with the mb and AMD includes an extra one with their Retail A64/FX51

I think it is a backplate for mounting your heatsink , this is how it looks to me, and MJ also posted it

He used the extra back plate that came with his cpu as the hold down for the promie head

Yes, its just a back plate for the heat sink mounting bracket to reduce flex and distribute pressure more evenly. It's part of the AMD socket 940/754 design specifications.
