Installation and Finished Product

The Intel backplate is universal in orientation as all sides are notched to miss the socket screws. You do need to adjust the nuts in or out dependent on the socket size, and there is a sticker on the reverse to secure the plate to the socket.

Locking the backplate to the motherboard is the job of the four standoffs seen at the corners of the socket. Screw them in until you run out of threads, and you will have the correct height on the standoffs for proper head unit pressure.

We applied some thermal paste and mounted the head unit to the motherboard, using the knurled nuts, securing all of the mounting hardware together. The tubing stays clear of the RAM, and we can route the wires coming from the head unit, while the USB cable is more visible.

With everything mounted into the chassis, we can see that not only the head unit has the Corsair name and logo, as the chromed one on the side of the radiator stands out as well. With the radiator much further away from the top of the motherboard than in many case designs, we still have plenty of tube, even if mounted in the front of other cases.

Once powered, the system and the H115i RGB Platinum come to life. The head unit has a rainbow of colors circling in a clockwise motion, while the fans mimic the same. Keep in mind, this is one of many pre-defined patterns, and the lighting is fully customizable on a per LED basis.
