I took a look at some coolers online and some have the spring screws or spring clips on them. Does anyone know if they come with a plate or something that I have to put behind the motherboard in order to install these kinds of coolers? Is it difficult to install and what are the risks of damaging my motherboard with the plate compared to the push pin things that I currently have...and broke.
What do you think of these? Like I said, I'm not looking for freezing temps. I just need to replace the one I had and possibly go a step up. I just want average running temps with some headroom for games. Speaking of games, if I upgrade my video card from 7300Gt to 8600GTS, will this make the CPU temp go up or will the video card GPU take all of the heat?...no pun intended.
Here's 2 examples. Would you think that they would "come with" a mounting kit as my board is a LGA775 socket and my motherboard only has the 4 holes...I just need to know before I buy so I don't end up having to buy a kit when it doesn't come with one.
