My Thermaltake Blue Orb II is coming via UPS sometime within the next two days. If anybody has this cooler, do you know whether or not you have to put a new backplate on the motherboard because I originally thought I had to but according to the instructions for AM2 they don't show any removal of a backplate. And the backplate is for K8. Does it matter?

My motherboard is an Asus M4A785G-M Evo. It has a metal backplate preinstalled.

Thanks for the help.

Maybe this guide can help you. Was made with a Hyper 212+, but the process for install a cooler is very similar in all.
