So I'm thinking if it's a frame that goes around the entire perimeter, it'll run into problems. Hmm...I'll have to check out my next cooler again. Thanks for the 411.

Well the problem was some brackets aren't flat, they curve so they either "seat" over the metal backplate, or they are molded to touch the motherboard. As long as the plates are completely flat (and insulated to prevent shorts) they should barely squeak by okay.

Well, all of the Corsair coolers use the X-style back plate that does rest on the back of the socket, not frame it. W00t!
