4. Installation Requirements
1) Space Requirements
The installation requires unobstructed space of 133mm (width) x 96mm (length) x 154mm (height) with the CPU as the central reference point. Before installation, please check if memory modules or motherboard heatsinks will not have any clearance issues with the CPU cooler.
2) Air Guide Removal
Air guides on enclosures must be removed, before the cooler’s installation, for they protrude into the cooler’s required space.
3) Protective Brace Removal
Please unclip and remove the heatsink's plastic brace before installing the cooler.
4) Cooler Orientation
Orient the cooler so that the thinner heatsink is facing the rear exhaust fan, while the thicker heatsink is facing the front case fan (see right image).
5) Cooler Handling
Please hold the cooler with both hands as shown in the diagram.
