Forgotten Backplate XC7 From hydro X


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

I build a new custom watercooled Computer and i forgot to change the corsair Backplate of my Cpu-coolingsystem XC7.

The sad think,I' m finished and also the watercooling system ist filled with water.

How false/bad could be become this fault ? if i dont change it now ? Is the backplate important?

And how i can change it without breaking my whole Computer ?

Sorry for my English :)

Would be nice if someone can help me out here.

The Temperatures wasn t that bad so ?

Hi Lecrob96,

 

Since you are talking about the CPU I think you mean the backplate behind your motherboard that you screw the XC7 water-block onto correct?

 

To my knowledge that backplate is simply there to provide structure and has no direct cooling function, if the XC7 fits and is tightly connected to the CPU (no gaps) I don't think that that is an issue.

Thx for the information.

Yes i mean the backplate of my motherboard.

I had luck because my motherboard had allready the right backplat on it.

it s even no possible to srew the cpu cooling block on the wrong backplate
