Again, the MSI MB did die, but it had a permanent metal backplate that you could screw the heatsink bracket into. As space is limited bumping into the graphics card in slot 1this can be tricky. It does not use pixel shaders. This ga-kn a bit of a contradiction in terms though. That was much easier to install. Previous Gigabyte models had these buried under heatsinks.
