So how easily does this cooler install?
Installation on a socket 1366 processor was not to bad and started off with inserting a backplate though the motherboard.
To save yourself from some frustration, make sure you processor is installed BEFORE installing the upper portion of the lower assembly in place. Once in place there is no way to install the processor.
Then all that is needed is for you to place the upper portion, and attached with the four provided screws. This takes all of one minute total.
Then all that is needed is to place the cooler and clip down the two attachment clips. Very simple, VERY secure and one of the easiest installs I have witnessed to date.
Finally it is installed and secure. Next you will have to use two wire clips to attach the fan and you are set to go. You can install the fan before installing the cooler if you want. It will not hinder the installation in any way.
