Default CPU cooler question

I'm planning to buy this CPU cooler after reading a bunch of reviews on it but after looking at the pictures i noticed a little cross piece that im assuming goes on the back of my motherboard. my motherboard already has a metal backplate behind my cpu socket. will i be able to install the CPU cooler anyways?

My Desktop: Intel Core i7-970@4.5GHz 1.39V Stable--ASUS P6X58D-E--6GB Supertalent Chrome (Elpida Hyper) 1800MHz 6-6-6-24--eVGA GTX 580--Intel 510 120GB--WD 2TB Caviar Black--Silverstone RV03-EK Supreme HF w/ Black Ice GTX 480--Koolance VID-NX580

My Laptop: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4GHz--4GB DDR2 800MHz RAM--NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT-320GB hard drive

You should be able to remove the backplate from your motherboard, I've never herd of one where you can't.
