Neither? You use the backplate supplied with your H100 cooler if you follow the directions. On page 1 and 3 of the manual it shows that you use different sized screws depending on whether you are using the LGA2011 mountiing holes or the LGA1366 ones.




The rIVe ships with LGA2011 mounting standard as seen in Eldonko's review here: ASUS X79 Rampage IV Extreme Socket 2011 Motherboard Review
It's only necessary to change it if you want to use a LGA1366 cooler. You've got one of the few coolers currently on the market that will fit LGA2011 stock.




Sorry if this is confusing. It's a new platform for all of us.


Edit:

I've totally changed my mind, sorry. When you look at Linus' video, at 4:25 or so it shows him screwing the LGA2011 screws in to the frontplate on the MSI board. The Rampage IV Extreme does not appear to have the same socket hardware. ASUS X79 Rampage IV Extreme Socket 2011 Motherboard Review

I'd test mount it using the LGA2011 screws and make sure you are getting good pressure on the CPU. If you aren't getting good contact, you may want to contact Corsair or post on their forum. I'm not sure that you can use the supplied LGA1366 backplate.

I'm changing the name of the thread to include Rampage IV Extreme, hopefully Eldonko can give you some direction.

Awesome thanks for your help, it is very confusing since corsair hasn't updated their h100 boxes yet so i wasn't sure. better to be safe than sorry.

This thread is a little confusing (at least to me) so I thought I'd offer some help as I have the R4E and presently have an H100 installed on it.

You want to use the the back plate that came installed on the board. The other one is for compatibility with 1366 mounting, do not use it!. The H100 instructions are not entirely clear, but you need to use the 2011 pegs included: they are the ones that have two different thread types and length as opposed to the regular Intel ones which are the same threads on both ends of the peg.

In step three of the Intel guide KaptCrunch posted you'll see the 2011 pegs sort of pictured, those are all you need to install the H100. Ignore the pic in step two- use the back plate already on the board
