I used the plastic AM4 backplate. Didnt try with the CM backplate.

It kindda sucks in terms of installing/removing. The screws don't have an end to the thread, so if you don't watch the "arm" of the bracket and you just keep screwing it in, you will actually bend the "arm". And obviously, there's no telling if you are screwing it in too tight, or too loose.

And if the spacing in your case is quite tight, good luck squeezing your hand in to unscrew it to remove the heatsink.

Honestly, just get a new cooler. I ended up getting a Cryorig H7, temperatures are identical, it looks cooler with the white fan and it is infinitely easier to install.
