Default Is there supposed to be no CPU backplate

I have a P35 DS3R motherboard and a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro and none of those packages comes with a X-shaped motherboard backplate to increase the structural integrity of the motherboard.

Would popping in the CPU and arctic cooling freezer do any harm to the motherboard?


My computer is now officially out of date :<

The Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro doesn't come with a x or h plate because it doesn't need it. Its like the stock fan and it just clips on.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
