Yeah, they will always come with the motherboard backing plate. The openings are all the same in cases, you just need the proper plate to fit your motherboard.

I've bought several things that were OEM and cheaper and there is nothing wrong with buying OEM parts. But, if you buy an OEM processor, you will need to buy a seperate heatsink to go with it, since it won't include that.

When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
