    Akaska Evo 33 HSF - need some quick advice please

    I just bought an evo 33 and realised I need to remove my mobo to fit the backplate, I really cba to do this and I think there is a back plate already on the back of the mobo. My question is, will it matter if I use the on on my mobo instead of the one supplied with the cooler?

    Mobo is a soltek SLK890 pro 939.

    Quick replies appreciated.

    If the screws fit and the retention bracket doesn't obstruct the heatsink there is no reason why not I used to fit my Thermaltake Sonictower using the original retention bracket.

    Be very careful, Evo's are tall, heavy coolers, you don't wanna be snapping your motherboard.

    I used mine on the default bracket for a few months then once I had a new Mobo I installed the proper one. Both worked find and there wasn't any difference in the temperatures before or after the proper bracket.

    Just install it and see if it makes good contact and is secure.
