Hi, I have a question about the CPU liquid cooling upgrade. I bought a Corsair H60 AIO liquid cooling but I am not sure if the backplate is already mounted behide the motherboard. From what I found only, a youtube video shows that the I need to remove the motherboard to get access to the back of the motherboard and mount backplate. Is that true? Is there a pre-mounted backplate on the motherboard? Thank You!

Also, is there a aftermarket liquid cooling system for GPU? I can't find a liquid cooling system for [GPU] on the Corsair website.

There is a bracket on the back of the motherboard already, unfortunately it only fits the OEM heatsink/fan combination.  You'll have to remove the motherboard to get to it and removing the old one takes some patience as it's held down with double stick tape.  I used a spudger and slowly worked my way around the tape to get it free then installed the AIO bracket.

I haven't seen a good AIO solution for the GPU, myself, I'm just going to upgrade the card with a better cooling solution.
