PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The mounting solutions look sturdy and relatively easy to install, although the motherboard will likely have to be removed for installation for both Intel and AMD platforms. The manual gives detailed mounting instructions, so let's get to it.
PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING
I'm not going to comment too much on the mounting system since ThermoLab has revamped the design. Not only did they add support for socket 1366, they completely redesigned the way I which the cooler gets fastened to the board. Users will be much happier with the new design, as the old one is very cumbersome and difficult to work with.
With the Baram on the board I encountered no interference issues around the socket.
