I have Socket 1366 I-950 right now, upgrading to I5-4670 (socket 1150) using a rasa water block on the I7-950 will the back plate work with the new 4670k ?

Socket 1366 and 115x are not the same bolting pattern.
That said, I believe the Rasa supported both 1366 and 115x, do you have the other mounting hardware from the box?

Nope. They are different sockets, but moreover, their holes are oriented a bit different. You would need a backplate that is for that platform.

Yes, and I also have a Cooler master 212 EVO that I haven't opened yet..maybe it will have one that will work.

I would not mix/match the brackets unless you know the screw threading is the same...

Went through few boxes and found couple of them. I need to sell off bunch of older stuff.
