Default Intel Push Pins

i heard that theres a better mount for the Intel 775 Socket push pins.
I want to use my OCZ Vendetta 2, whenever i get a new CPU and Board, and i dont want to use the push pins seeing how they dont actually work well.
one thing i read was to buy something, put a bracket under the mobo, and then insert the HSF like a regular push pin, but its more secure
so any link or information on how to change it?
thanks in advance.

The OCZ Vendetta 2 is semi-identical to the Xigmatek HDT-S1283. Xigmatek have an LGA775 backplate available, if you can't find one of them available, Thermalright's LGA775 backplate also works.
