You might be able to... However, some coolers are much heavier than others.

Yea my bad, I didn't know you were talking about the rig in your signature. AMD should be pretty universal for the bracket so you should be OK.

Just seems redundant that the rear bracket would have to be changed out. I see how the front bracket is important because it molds with the cooler, but the rear bracket just sits back there to hold the screws?

Yea I don't think you'll have to remount the rear bracket it should fit whatever other cooler you get.

it dont work that way. the screws that come with the cooler with not screw into the stock backplate. they are threaded differently. thats why he has to use the backplate that comes with the cooler.

in that case yea, i had coolit eco some time ago, they fit into stock one... coming just from exp, but yea if different size, then yea remove front and back, and install new ones, clean CPU before apply new cooler, smack it on top of cpu, srew like z leter, for example bottom left, top right, top left, bot right, it will apply presure move evenly and wont crank MOBO

I currently have the stock 1100T CPU cooler on it

Will be moving to antec 620 cooler

I would rather not remove the rear bracket if I don't have to. The mobo is the Asus CHIVE, where the CPU is mounted more to the center of the board. Because of the location, the opening on the storm scout case only gives me access to half the rear bracket.

If I want to remove the rear bracket, I'd have to take everything apart and remove the mobo from the case. I have no problem with that but would rather not because all the wires would plop right out again (it took me a while to get the wires cleaned up and organized)
