Default Mount H75 with H60 backplate/standoffs

Hi,

I'm getting a Corsair H75 in replacement of my H60 (it has started making a clicking noise under load, have to put my case on the side to stop it).

With the H60, the mounting backplate was extremely loose (I know it can be a little loose), so loose that I put another metal backplate between the backplate and the mobo. This way the standoffs are firmly fixed to the mobo.

I hope it won't be the same thing with the H75, but if it is, I wonder if I can use my actual H60 backplate+metal backplate setup to mount the H75 pump.

Because I don't think my metal backplate will fit the H75 round backplate, but the standoffs look the same so maybe?

What do you think, can I use the H60 backplate (and standoffs?) with my metal backplate to mount the H75 pump?
By the way, are the tightened standoffs to the mobo a bad thing somehow? (My temps are ok, thermal paste is well spread.)

Thank you for your help

No, the mounting hardware between the H60 (square) compared to the H75 (Circle) is different.

If your replacement was another "square" cooler e.g. H80i, your mounting hardware will work fine.

I know the backplate is not the same but on the CPU side the standoffs seem to be the same no?

It will most likely be different.

The coolers are made by different OEMs. "Square" being CoolIt and the "Circle" being Asetek.
