Would Xigmatek HDT-S1283 Red Scorpion Edition fit in my case with my current hardware? because I'm leaning towards purchasing that one.... I also read on a review that i doesn't require a backplate for the motherboard to install to make installation of the device much easier is this true?

Yes it'll fit your case. We have the same case and I used to have a Xigmatek DK (which is exactly the same cooler as the Red Scorpion except for the color).

For the Red Scorpion, installation will not require you to remove the motherboard because it doesn't require a backplate. I think for AMD cpus you just mount and clip it. The disadvantage of not having a backplate is that you won't cool your CPU as much compared to having a backplate.

but how much more reduction would i get with backplate and without? and also about the xigmatek red scorpion does it fit AM3 because i have seen various different things on different sites saying it doesn't and others saying it does

Just get a Hyper 212+. Dont be lazy, take out your board and put on the backplate. It will fit in your case and drop your temps significantly and its budget friendly. I went from a Zalman to the 212+ and got a 7 degree drop in temps.

I have just recently recieved my hyper 212+ and I just want to a ask another small question about the it... Which way should i place the heatsink and fan? for example should i have the heatsink and fan facing upwards towards the top of the case so the air gets vented out the top of to the side so it gets vented out the rear exhaust?

if your case has a top fan aim it up. If not, aim it to the back of the case to the rear exhaust.
always remember the rule, heat rises. Its best to push it that way whenever possible.
