Thread Starter 
hey guys, i am in the middle of building my sig rig, i have a ek supreme hf for my 2600k in my maximus iv extreme. I was wondering do i need to take the cpu holding bracket off to install the backplate of the ek block or just install over the one it has?

You should use the backplate that came with the block. They make a custom one for a reason.

but if i remove the backplate it also removes that bracket holding the cpu down in pic 1, is that ok? im guessing the waterblock will replace the job that the bracket is doing?

Use the supplied back plate from EK. And it will go over the cpu back plate that is there. So you will slack the EK on top of the old one, aka piggy back it.

Your last picture is basically what you do. Just make sure you use the proper washers and spacers. They won't fit "snug", but will work once the rubber compresses a bit.

Yeah you can install directly over the "stock" backplate. I've got almost an identical set up. EK also sells their own backplate which can be used. This alternative backplate DOES require removing the stock backplate, but it allows the waterblock's plate to sit flush against the PCB. This alternative backplate is called the "EK TRUE" backplate, and supposedly offers better temps.

I know because I have the stock EK Supreme HF and I bought the extra TRUE backplate. However, I don't use the TRUE backplate because I really don't want to remove my CPU bracket.
