How do you know when you need a backplate for the cooler?

For instance would I need a backplate for this CPU cooler: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2
and this Motherboard: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-z87c ?

  1. It seems as if the links don't work http://pcpartpicker.com/p/12Eho it's the cooler/motherboard in this list.
  2. Coolers that require back plates pretty much come with them. The hyper evo certainly has one in the kit.

    Yes i know, but i've seen videos where they say they don't need them because of their motherboard.
