With all of the brackets in the little bags, there is no way to tell which is for the 478, K8 or even the 775. Most people know that the 775 is a bit bigger than the 478 socket, but I do think they should have labeled the bags at least.

To figure out what clip goes with what socket, I took a 478 and placed it on the left side of the processor and one for the 775 on the right side. If you’re not sure what set you need to screw down on the heat sink, you can lay them down next to it 1st to line up the holes.

They passed on using the plastic clips or brackets, all of the pieces are either steal or aluminum.

They did include some Mylar rings with an adhesive to keep the metal from shorting out the motherboard.

When resting the heat sink flat on the process you have just over 1mm of gap that you will need to close when you tighten things down.

The back plate has one side that is covered with Mylar for your protection and the ends are drilled out to fit both 478 & 775 systems.

After getting all four screws in and flipping the motherboard back over, things are ready to go back into the case and run some tests.

I did make sure that I tightened down everything evenly.

Nice thing is the HS is not coving any of the power plugs, so it should be easy to get everything in.
