Does the XIGMATEK dark knight - s1283 come with the retention bracket?

I have the Xigmatek 1283 and I purchased the retention bracket seperately. It was around 6.99 on Newegg. I'm not sure what the dark knight is tho.

Mine came with a push pin system, but I ordered the seperate retention bracket so I could use screws.

No. It only comes with the usual push pin set up. Btw, the Dark Knight doesn't perform as well as the normal S1283

I strongly recommend spending the extra $7-8 for the bolt in kit.

Edit:
The Dark Knight version comes with the bolt in kit.

^ Yes. You are correct. It looks like it now ships with the brackets. When it just came out it didn't have the brackets. I stand corrected.

So do they both come with a bracket nowadays? or just the Dark Knight version??
