Its attached to the case. You have to take the motherboard out and push the panel in from the outside of the case.

sometimes its glued on so take a heat gun and blow hot air onto the back of the plate, then see if it comes off

There should be screws on the top, unscrew them and your good.

Apparently, the backplate is glued. I was told to use a heat gun to heat the glue to loosen it. How high of the heat can I apply that the MOB would not be damage? And once the backplate is off, would removing the glue from the MOB be easy?

I'm trying to install an asetek cpu water block. Problem is how to remove the backplate that is part of the cpu heatsink retention. Apparently, the metal piece is stuck onto the back of the MOB even after unscrewing the top part off. There is a thin black layer in-between the MOB and the backplate. The MOB I have is Asus K8N-DL with 940 sockets.
