a couple of members lost their status w/ the cashback thing. Hope it doesn't happen to you. Also thermalright has 1366 mounting brackets now
Nehalem Socket B / LGA 1366 /Bolt-Thru-Kit with Screws & Springs
Thermalright LGA1366 Bolt-Thru-Kit Retail BOX Bolt-thru Board Mounting kit

I used it before and it worked, hopefully it works now.

Any idea if those brackets will fit a xigmatek 1283 or a core contact? I can get those easier/cheaper

I doubt it. The TRUE has a hole in the middle to accept the screw on the mounting. I think it would just move aound too much on the xigmatek. I have heard of people using the thermalright mounts w/ a penny in the middle for extra pressure so it might work out for you. I tried it and its alot of extra pressure.

I prefer usps anyways. Never had a damaged box from them yet. I was looking at that p6t from conn. too. 299 w/ 25% back is a good deal. Would of only taken a day to get to my house.
