Installation and Finished Product
You need to align the through bolts to the flat side in the Intel trio of holes on each tab. You can see similar flat spots in the AMD holes. The back plate comes with the plastic pads on the Intel side, but AMD users will want to put the clear stickers on the side facing you marked for AMD.
Holding the back plate to the motherboard is these four black plastic risers. Not only are they what supports the hardware when it is bolted into place, their inner diameter holes are tight on the bolts and keep it from backing out while you add the head unit over it.
The extruded legs on the sides of the head unit will go around the bolts, and you simply screw the top nuts down until there is no more turning left in it. The springs under these nuts will even out the pressure and keep the block firm against the CPU.
As with any AIO, there is no restrictions incurred with using one. You can use whatever memory you would like, and it does not matter about the cooler hitting the video card either. One thing to consider is localized air flow, but with the dual radiator just above the motherboard, there is more of a draft offered here than with the TD03.
As I did with the TD03, I will do the same with the TD02. Since my test chassis does not offer fan placement in the top of it, I will go about testing by just setting this radiator on top of my D-Frame, allowing the fans to draw air in from the bottom to replicate what you will get when setup in most chassis designs.
