HI i wanted to change my CPU cooler with a Hyper 212 or a CM TX3

as i saw Hyper 212 requires a backplate & TX3 is a push pin / clip pin

but on my Motherboard Right now i have a stock cooler with screws  (not the intel push pin ones )

i searched the internet & found that i have a pre-installed backplate sometimes with screws or glue 

is it possible to remove it to replace it with the new cooler 

i can't open my PC case from 2 sides so i have to pull off the Motherboard to see behind the Cpu soket 

im not a pro in PC mounting i came here to ask about what you think ?

my Socket is LGA1156 

CPU : Xeon X3450 2.66ghz 

& my whole PC is a lenovo E20 (GTX 750 ti + 430W pSU) upgrades ....

Thanks for the help & sorry for my bad english im moroccan :3

the picture shows my actual Cooler

You should be able to unscrew the stock backplate from the motherboard, and if there's any glue you should in theory still be able to pry it off if your careful. However, what you should look for is the back of the case itself the backplate for many aftermarket coolers are slightly larger then the stock one, and require more room behind the motherboard. Many aftermarket cases provide space for this, while many oem (cases that come with store bought computers) don't.

If it's glued ID be extremely careful pulling it off, and maybe there's a trick to it. I'm not a Intel guy, so maybe wait and see if someone else who does a lot of Intel work will know how to get it off the glue.

Use your screwdriver to push down and turn those screws until they come out.

60C is normal. 0-90C is a good range. Is 60C idle or load?
