[SOLVED] Can I use the backplate of another cooling system for my new cooling system?

My corsair H60 liquid cooling recently died. I replaced it with an Arctic Freezer 34 eSports. Do I need to change the already installed backplate from the H60 with the backplate of the Arctic Freezer?

Edit: have in mind I have no experience building computers

For anyone wondering from now on, I tried the new cooling system with the H60 backplate but it didn't work properly. The Arctic Freezer wasn't tight enough to the CPU so the temps were high. Changed the backplate to the arctic freezer and has worked amazingly. So in this case you do need to change the backplate.
