  1. 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.
  2. Mine came with a push pin system, but I ordered the seperate retention bracket so I could use screws.
  3. No. It only comes with the usual push pin set up. Btw, the Dark Knight doesn't perform as well as the normal S1283
    See:

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

    Edit:
    The Dark Knight version comes with the bolt in kit.
  4. Wait the last pic on http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=2333
    Isn't that the retention bracket or am I wrong here, I've only seen images of the thing from newegg.
  5. ^ 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.
  6. So do they both come with a bracket nowadays? or just the Dark Knight version??
  7. ^AFAIK only the Dark Knight.
  8. as of 1/3/09, s1283 does not. purchase separately.
