I learned today, that the plastic AM3 bracket that came with some screws and a protected metal backplate, doesn't fit the board.
It would have been nice if you had informed me of this, on your website. Surely you would already have known, because of how you made the holes for the AM3 coolers.
Luckily, it seems that I can use the "trench" in the plastic, on the backside, to saw off some plastic, to make the bracket fit. Worst case, I could saw off the entire side.
Somewhat related: The AM4 backplate, has a mild adhesive, and can easily be loosened, by using a small flat screwdriver. I just had to apply a little pressure, and hold it for a few seconds, then I heard the adhesive loosen up. I repeated this at all four corners, and could eventually remove the bakcplate by hand.
