    So I was changing motherboards today, and my shite phanteks cooler's screw got stuck in the backplate. After a couple unsuccessful tries at unscrewing it the screw head broke off, leaving me with half a screw sticking out of my new backplate and no way to get it out. Long story short, I need a new backplate. I've been looking around, and near as I can tell they're all pretty standard on the AMD boards. I found this one from the states that looks like the one I had, wondering if it will work: (the actual bracket is a little different, as mine has two separate plastic parts, but I read that the actual backplate is the same) .. My board is a AM3+ Sabertooth 990fx.


    ... Phanteks .. Bah.
