Here we have laid out the dual fan Y-splitter at the top with the universal backplate in the middle offering thick foam pads to isolate it from the motherboard. On the left, we have the AMD head unit brackets, the Intel ones are to the right, and below the plate is the supplied mini tube of thermal paste.

From left to right, we have the studs that pass through the backplate and motherboard followed by the spacers that lock said studs to the motherboard, and a tiny set of screws below that lock the brackets into the head unit. We then run into the nuts to lock the cooler in with the LGA2011 standoffs at the right. There is also a set of paper washers across the bottom that go under the spacer nuts to protect the top of the motherboard.

When it comes to fan mounting, someone forgot how to count at some point. While we are given eight shorter screws to secure the radiator to the chassis, they seem to have only supplied us with four fan screws and is why the previous image only had two screws in each fan.

The guide provided to follow had pretty good renderings that explain everything along the way, and if you do manage to get stuck, there is ample text as well to work you through it. They also include a parts list to tell you what should be in the box, and it technically shows we should only have one, so I guess we got lucky.

For those of you who may want to think about a push/pull setup on a cooler like this, since the cost of the unit almost justifies adding in more fans, we were sure to get an image of the model number for reference. As hard as this cooler is to find on this side of the pond, though, the fans are very rare it seems as we cannot locate them at all.
