    It will work with mounting with the four holes around the GPU. You need to make sure the backplate doesn't interfere with the vram/vrm heatsinks where the backplate curls around.

    yer the backplates has rubber nipples haha so i guess thats to stop them touching, even with the 4 holes ill need some type of nuts becasue it doesn't use the same 4 holes the cooler uses.
