Assembly and Testing
To get things installed I started by plugging in the wiring to the AirFlow Pro. Reason is that it is easier to get access to this now than any other part of the installation. The power wire goes on the right. As for the memory connections, it doesn't matter which ones you use, and the onboard programming will sort it out and activate the lights.
While the end with the shroud has tabs that latch into the top of the cooler, this end is where the actual fastening of the AirFlow Pro is done. Remove two of the screws from the fan assembly and replace them with the risers. To mount the AirFlow Pro, simply screw in two thumb screws.
Fully assembled the whole unit stands quite tall, but we are only a couple of steps from getting the testing underway.
Looking at the unit from the top you can see that the curved design of the AirFlow Po is not only stylish, but allows more room for the 60mm fans to gulp air from.
As you can see, there is a bit of room to tuck the extra wires under the cover on this end of the cooler. At this point I recommend you run the wires through the hole in the leg and get ready to plug them into the memory modules.
I plugged in the memory end of the wiring off the motherboard as it is much easier here to show them. I would suggest getting comfortable when going to install this as the wires are long enough to get things plugged in, but not long enough to say, rest the fan on the VGA, it needs to be held in the air while you make the connections.
Here we have the whole kit installed and ready for testing. Check out our short video review of the lights in action with an explanation of what you are seeing :-
