Accessories and Documentation




Part of the H.P.M.S. is shown here. These are the mounting legs for the top half of the motherboard that are equipped to work for both AMD and Intel. In the center is the cross bar that will attach to both of these legs to secure the cooler to the motherboard.




Scythe also sends a packet of TIM, a black rubber pad for the back plate to use with LGA775 boards, and four white nylon washers to isolate some of the hardware from the motherboard. You also have the Intel back plate with its various holes for the many socket types. AMD users need the stock back plate for mounting.




The rest of the kit contains four taller risers for AMD and Intel's various sockets, and the shorter ones to the right are for LGA2011 only. The four screws at the bottom left are to mount the universal legs on the top of the motherboard to the risers. The wrench is to be used with the pair of screws on the right that secure the cross bar to the mounting legs under it.




Unfolding the paperwork shows that the front of this manual gets right to the point. Here you will find a list of all of the components along with an image of removing the plastic from the base, and another depicting the direction of air flow and the blade rotation of the 140mm fan.




Scythe then breaks down each installation with its own page of instructions. For instance, this page pictured above is strictly for LGA2011 installations.




The two pages inside the manual show the rest of the Intel sockets since LGA775 and up installation on the left side. On the right it then covers the installation of the GKC2 on an AMD motherboard from AM2 onwards.
