PRODUCT INSTALLATION


So how easily does this cooler install?



The first step was to grab the backing plate and install the nuts and retention clip for behind the motherboard.



After applying on adhesive pads on the back plate, you try you best to line it up with the pre-drilled holes. This took some time and wasn't the best backplate solution I have worked with before.



The backplate did not stick through the motherboard and thus you had to try to align it up while it was floating behind the motherboard before pressing it down and sticking it to the back of the socket. This was incredibly irritating and another solution should be thought up for this. I my opinion, all backing plates should partially come through the mounting holes for alignment. But after some swearing and contorting, I finally lined it up.




Then all that is needed is for you to install the clips for your processor onto the cooler, apply thermal paste, place it on the processor and tighten it down with the four provided screws. I do have to say that their method does hold it firmly in place.
