Installation


The back plate is universal, so it installs easy enough. Just pop it on the back of your motherboard and put the four long screws through the motherboard.

Four plastic retention clips hold it in place.

There’s a set of AMD and Intel brackets included, each screws directly onto the cooler with two screws on each side.

Four sleeved screws are then placed onto the motherboard.

Mount the fans using the retention clips.

Then it’s simply a case of using four nuts to hold the cooler onto the sleeved screws.

I use the word “simply” ironically, as it’s actually incredibly difficult to reach the nuts here; there’s a small spanner included to help.

The main issues was this rear nut, as its access is hindered by our motherboards VRM coolers, it’s not impossible, but it’s very difficult. This will of course vary from motherboard to motherboard.
