Installation and Finished Product

After installing the studs and the retainer clips in the right position for LGA115X sockets, all you have left to do is to align it on the back of the motherboard. Orientation does not matter either, as there are cavities on the underside which allow for the top two socket mounting screws.

Once the backplate is in place, you take the standoffs, which have a nylon washer on both ends, and screw them in with the socket until you run out of threads. At this point, you just add some thermal paste and secure the adjustable bracket to the standoffs.

The MA410P stands tall, and while very close to the memory, but just slides past them. If adding a second fan on quad channel sockets, we would expect the fan not to conflict with the memory there either.

Since there is not an offset from the base to the fins, the MA410P sits further left than many coolers we have seen recently. This leaves plenty of room to add a second fan and still have access to the motherboard screws as well as the 8-pin CPU power connection.

While most of our images were of a lot of natural aluminum and exposed copper, but once installed, much of that is no longer visible. The black brushed metal top fin with the Cooler Master logo is clean looking, and compliments the rest of the build. Even with the copper tips exposed through the top fin, we like what we see here.

For those wondering what the fan looks like when it is powered, this is what you will get. Four LEDs inside of the hub are what flood the fins with light, and whether using the motherboard to control the color or the wired remote, there are tons of options to flip through and try out.
