I'll use the OEM backplate. On this video he removed the OEM backplate, how do you remove the OEM backplate it is in the motherboard very secure.

if you look very close at the H 100 back plate, you will notice 2 of the sides are cut out to go around the 2 screws from the intel socket plate. Line those up and it will fit perfect. When you screw the 4 screws in from the motherboard side, they will not fit tight. That is normal. The mounting screws from the pump will make it fit tight.

It doesn't line up. The backplate that comes with the H100 doesn't fit on socket 2011, the OEM one works but this one that comes with is pointless.

he didn't uninstall the back plate. Plus, the video was installing it on a socket 1366 notan 1155 or 2011.

In this thread he used the OEM backplate. It appears since my motherboard has a backplate there is no concern, the backplate that comes with the H100 is merely a option for those on other sockets or without backplates.

Jeremy,
Remove the OEM back plate. Of course it comes off but it may have some double face tape on it to help it stick. These back plates come off. If I were you I'd use the Corsair provided plate and mounting screws. This is were pictures and spec's and some clarity in describing what you were doing would have helped. I was always assuming you had the Corsair plate on the mobo and it was just the screws.

What have you decided to do?

I've gone ahead and used the OEM. It's too risky to take off the OEM backplate. Struggling, then it causes a ripple effect of another problem.

Great, I'm glad to hear you could make the parts all work together. You'll dig the cooling power of this unit.

I hope so. I realized one thing, the manual for the H100 is not socket specific, it just says Intel or AMD. If your board is gracious, and you have a proper back plate it will make life a little easier, if your board doesn't have a back plate then fortunately the H100 supplies this. I could have taken off the OEM backplate, but none the less as long as as it works, and works well

Should the H100 fans be blowing on the CPU or the opposite direction ? I'm in a dispute / argument with someone who thinks I'm wrong, wrong, wrong with the H100 fans blowing on the CPU.

New CPU cooler. H100, H80, H70 Core with custom fans or H2o 620?
Hi guys, I'm trying to decide between an Antec H2o 620, an H70 core with custom fans, an H80 and an H100. I'm running an 8210 Oc'ed to 4300K and do play some demanding games. My case comes prepared to install a 240 mm radiator, hence the H100 is an option, but I think it might be overkill and...

H100 pump makes somewhat loud grinding noise
