The backplate is easily mounted, just pop it on the back of the motherboard and slot the four screws through the holes on your motherboard.
You then need to screw four nuts over the screws to hold it in place, which does take a few minutes to wind them all on, but it’s far from physically demanding. This gives your four pegs remaining for which to screw the CPU block down onto the motherboard; pretty easy overall.
Screwing the CPU tower down is nice and easy and while you can use a screwdriver if required, it’s possible to do this whole installation tool-free. Then you simply clip the fan on and you’re good to go.
The slim design means that even with a huge fan on there, it doesn’t conflict with any memory modules or motherboard components, and there’s even room for a second fan should you need extra cooling performance.
