Aside from mounting the radiator and the water block, this is all you need to do otherwise. Grab the two leads, plug in the SATA power on the left side, and be sure to add in the PWM signaling wire if you want these fans not to run at full speed all the time.

Getting here is truly painful. With one hand holding the back plate, balancing the motherboard, we are asked to press down hard to compress the springs enough to start the thumbscrews into the plate. While this took us much longer to accomplish than mounting any other water block, as you can see we did eventually win the battle.

Stepping back to take it all in, as with any custom cooling block or sealed loop head units, they sit low and are clear from contact with anything around them.

The D-Frame does not offer traditional fan mounting, but we did strap it on the top to show just how far away you can get the radiator, and still have gentle bends in the tubing. With over 15" of tubing in this design, mounting in the front of the chassis is no problem either, but EK does not recommend this installs on the floor due to the pump placement in that situation, as it would draw air, not coolant.
