Installation and Finished Product

We sent the studs through the LGA115X holes in the backplate and have already slipped the black washers over them prior to installing the plate. While AMD sockets do require one of two orientations of this plate, it clears for Intel sockets in all four directions.

As the guide shows us, it is then that we install the standoffs, set the top bracket into place, and with the provided wrench, we tightened all four nuts until they stopped moving.

On some motherboards, the provided wrench would suit most users just fine. As we can see it fits well and can easily be turned. However, with our motherboard, access at the top of the motherboard is nil, and we are pleased we have the screwdriver option to use.

With room on either side of the memory left as this cooler stands behind them, it is easy to gauge that this is indeed a 120mm CPU cooling solution. Thing is though, even with the bright red used here, that bold choice of yellow still looks good, and in our opinion does not clash as much as one might assume.

Of course the usual suspects when it comes to memory, as long as the heat spreaders aren't that tall will indeed fit into all four slots. With memory such as what we used, we could remove the top, but otherwise, we find one slot almost useless without that option.

This is a thick bodied tower, but even so there is still plenty of room for that second fan option. We would have loved to have seen that performance as well, but alas, we only have one fan.

While much of the yellow in the fan is blocked from this angle of viewing the Justice RC-1204, we still have the fan clips to remind us. With most users looking at this for most of the coolers life, we appreciate the measures taken to dress this up for more pleasurable viewing rather than seeing pipe tips and regular fins.
