Question about barrow waterblock installation on a ASUS TUF RTX 3080

Level 7
I planning build my first watercooling loop and i bought a barrow waterblock for my ASUS TUF RTX 3080, this block:

I have read that this block comes with no installation manual or the manual is very poorly explained, so i have two doubs:

1) From what i observed from youtube videos of waterblock installation on a asus tuf 3080, the back plate is assembled and screwed with the PCB and this barrow waterblock in question is compatible with the stock backplate, so my doubt is if really necessary to unscrew and dissamble the backplate to install this waterblock or i need only to remove the front tradiator?

2) This waterblock being compatible with the stock backplate can i use the stock screws to reassemble or is really necessary to use the screws the barrow provide?

Any help is welcome
