Already a backplate on my motherboard?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
There's something that looks a lot like this already on the back of my motherboard:

I can see it thru the small fan hole on the back side panel of my CM 690.
Does this mean I don't have to take out my motherboard if I install a different bolt-thru cooler such as the H50? I could just install the retention ring that comes with an H50 and not have to exchange any backplate.
Yes, I know, this must mean that I'm really lazy...

None of my backplates have threaded holes; you have to use nuts on the back. For mine, I actually need to take out the board to get to the nuts at all.

Lol'd at "to get the nuts at all". You're like the squirrel from Ice Age.

On topic. Yeah, my PC has a retention bracket already on there too (X shaped one), curious to know as to whether it's safe to rip the sucker off.

My backplate is threaded all the way through, so I just used that for my waterblock install.

You can give it a shot and see if it works. When I had that mb, I had to removed the backplate. The holes weren't the same size as the screws that I was using for my waterblock.
