Default Heatsink

I have a 775 socket motherboard with a heatsink that has screws and was wondering if a different heatsink with push pins will fit without removeing the backplate?

Thanks for any help

Nope, you're going to need to remove that backplate. You might get it to fit if you push it in there. You're going to have a big problem when trying to remove it. Your backplate should just fall to the bottom of your case when you unscrew your heatsink. That depends on the case.

most come with some way to make it stick to the bottom of the motherboard, it shouldn't be hard to get off, just be careful...

Some of the brackets had a sticker you could peel off for extra security. Those are difficult to get off. You will have to remove your motherboard.

If you do get a heatsink, get one with a back plate or get a back plate kit. Push-pins are evil.
