The second "backplate" is the real backplate that will go behind your motherboard, the other is a retention ring which will go around the pump on the AIO and screw down through the motherboard into the backplate to hold the cooler in place.
So youll be using both, as seen in step 3.

Wow I watched several videos and didn't pay attention for that.
Thank you.
