Accessories and Documentation
Testing eight to ten CPU coolers a month means I like simplicity when mounting them. The last thing I want to do is start yanking an entire system apart just to change the CPU heatsink, and that is on a moderately configured setup. For enthusiast systems it is even worse since many of you run several hard drives, a couple of optical drives, wires going all over and lights hanging. Pulling a motherboard can be an all day job, making a heatsink change one of the biggest pain in the butt operations around if you need to remove the motherboard.
Thankfully, Thermaltake feels your pain and came up with a really cool way to mount the cooler without taking your motherboard out, whilst keeping the parts list (budget) down as well. The top mount is used for both AMD and Intel platforms. In the case of AMD systems, you use the motherboards own under-board bracket, or if you do not have one Thermaltake supplied a spare. For Intel setups, usually a sure motherboard removal with most companies' aftermarket heatsinks, you can attach the OEM style pins by clipping them to the top bracket and inserting the entire bracket/cooler combo directly to the board. I really like this arrangement.
The manual was written in a step-by-step fashion and is easy to follow along. The illustrations make for a fast look over so you know everything is performed correctly.
