Installation and Finished Product
For AMD, once you have the clear plastic isolating pads on it, you send the studs through the holes and align the flat side of the stud with the holes. For the Intel mounting, excluding LGA2011, you find the correctly market hold for you socket, and again line up the flat sides of the studs and send them through.
For Intel sockets make sure you have this on the right way. There are only holes drilled for the pair of socket screws in the one side. If you look closely at the bottom two studs, you can see a line on the head that lines up with the flat post on the side of it to match the plate.
For both the AMD and Intel hardware, you can set these in a north/south or east/west orientation. What you need to consider is that the holes in the brackets need to point at the CPU like the ones installed here.
Once everything is set on correctly and ready to be secured, you just simply add the four thumbscrews and tighten them all the way down.
Drop on some thermal paste on the CPU and set on the NT06-PRO. When you go to get to the screws on the cross-bar, you see how important removing the ends of these five fins really was. Without this sort of access there would be no way to get in here and tighten these screws. With the access we do have, alternate between sides and send the screws in until they stop spinning.
Before you get too far with the fan, make sure to take four of the isolation pads and set them onto the fan just outside of the screw holes. Keep in mind the direction of the fans air flow when placing these on the fans, too.
