Installation and Finished Product
The instructions tell us to take the studs supplied with the hardware and to push them through the middle holes at each corner for LGA115X. Also, make sure that the Hex heads on them are aligned with the other side of the backplate, so they lock into place properly.
The backplate just fits our Sabertooth opening and is made to work both ways as either end is drilled with all the holes needed to clear the socket screws. You can also see what we meant about aligning the screws to fit in the grooves of the backplate.
The studs are only threaded so far, and the top brackets rest on the fatter part under those threads. Then to lock it all down, you screw on and tighten the four knurled nuts. Also, make sure you see threads in the brackets and not the sticker with an X on it denoting they are upside down.
The fan does need to be removed to gain access to both of the mounting screws. Getting this mounted though is simple, just swap screws every few threads, and when they run out, you are done.
With a medium sized tower like this, we find the majority of the fan is still drawing in fresh air, with very little of is hiding behind the memory. We can also see it does not sit near as wide as many other tower coolers do either.
The box plainly stated that there is zero interference with RAM and this cooler, and this image proves this to be true. There is no issue with populating all of the slots, and swapping them out without removing the cooler is fully possible.
From the top, we see that the cooler does not take up much room on the board either. Even if you added in a second fan, you are just filling the gap left for the socket clearance.
Now that all of the gear is in the chassis and we have a chance to step back, we do like the look if the cooler. It clears everything around it, and as you will soon see, is more than capable for its size too.
