    Since it seems these don't exist any where in the US at this point. Does anyone think its possible just to use a different vendors backplate instead to get a good mount?

    I can tell you the 1151 backplate for the EKWB Velocity block and the Aqua Computer Kryos Next with Vision are virtually identical. I also own a Heatkiller 4 pro and can check that for you if you'd like, but I'm guessing it also identical to the others.

    I'm assuming my heatkiller came with a backplate. I actually only briefly took the block out of the box as I was so impressed with the Aqua Computer block I never actually installed it.

    Everything I'm reading says it does not come with a back plate...which is crazy.

    You're right, evidently it does not come with a backplate. However it does come with mounting screws for the backplate. All the 1151 backplates ive seen look the same, so im guessing you shouldn't have a problem mounting this bad boy with your existing backplate.

    Update: The manual also appears to show installation without a backplate. See attached pics

    You should be good to go...

    Ya, I've just read it doesn't do as well without one...and of course I'm going to use this on a 9900k. Guess I'll give it a shot to see how it goes before buying something else to steal its backplate.

    Worked fine without a backplate for me.

    I just ordered a backplate from Germany a few days ago. If I would have seen this first we could have split the international shipping. It should be here next Monday.
