What is a Bolt-Thru kit for the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 that for sure works? I know about the Thermalright LGA775 kit. Is this a good one? Can anyone confirm that it works with this Heatsink? Thanks.\

EDIT: LOL. I just found out that you need to put the retention bracket on the back of the Mobo. I didn't know that I would have to do that. I guess its worth it in the long run if it works.

I've got the thermalright bolt on kit. It works fine. You need to take out the 4 push-pins on the 2 legs that come with the S1283. Also you might want to take your motherboard out, install the heatsink (without fan since you won't be able to screw the springscrews in), screw in the kit, put on the fan and finally put the board back in the case. Some of the screws sit at funny angles cause the 2 legs aren't exactly circular but it's not really too much a deal.
