PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH




Removing four tiny screws allows the fan and bracket to be removed, revealing the thermistor that will control the fan speed according to temperatures sensed in this area.



As I mentioned above, the Intel 775 bracket comes installed on the Falcon, and the X-shaped backplate and brass nipples provide a secure mount. The AMD clips are easily installed per the instructions in the manual and interface with the center lug on the stock retention bracket. The thermal paste spreading tool is a nice addition, allowing a very thin, uniform application of the included TIM.



Here's an exploded diagram of the design. About all you'll need to install the Falcon 92-Al is a (long, skinny Philips) screwdriver. Let's get it on the mobo and see how it performs.

 

PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



For this review, we'll be using the Intel-based DFI P965-S Dark motherboard, so the first order of business is to get the backplate installed. An adhesive pad is pre-applied on the plate to help keep the plate aligned with the motherboard mounting holes.
