Default Alright.... Not happy...

I bought a noctua NH-D14 and i thought i was ok.... but apparently i wasnt. Until asus sends my backplate to me in a few days, will the stock cooler be sufficent for now? Phenom II X4.

Yeah. Don't worry about overclocking until you get the backplate, though.

Yea, i figured that a $229.99 board would have come with back plate. And i thought it was funny that the noctua came with a intel bracket and mounting hardware, but no bracket for amd, only the mounting hardware. I pleasantly asked Asus to get my bracket to me asap, and after a some heckling i got them to send it in a priority mail envelope. I mean i hate being even a little rude to customer service cause its not their fault, but i did pay a premium for their flagship board... it should come with a back plate.
