Default Xigmatek Achilles S1284 results are in!

Looks like the TRUE is definitely out now!

Actually, I re-read the review now that I'm actually awake. Seems the 1283 is still on top.

Also, you can still use the standard bolt/backplate kit, just not Xigmatek's. All you have to do is remove the push pins.

Any idea where I could get a back plate?

Am I missing something? It didn't beat the TRUE...

I was thinking the same thing. I wonder when Thermalright will come out with something new.

The HDT-S1283 does though, and I want it but I need a backplate because I am NOT using Intel push pins.

Thanks! And the first link was helpful too, I needed some screws and they look right.

I got mine from sidewinder, I'm not sure if they ship overseas though.
