After removal of the top retention bracket of an AMD motherboard, using what is shown here, allows the DRP 4 to be able to be mounted. First, put the standoffs on the studs from the factory backplate, then put the AMD brackets on top of the standoffs. You then use these screws to secure the brackets to the rest of the hardware. The washers are noted to go with AM3 mounting and are used under the plastic standoffs.

When looking to use the DRP 4 with an LGA1156 or LGA1366, you will need these three parts. In the middle is the backplate, which is made to install in any orientation. To either side of it are the top brackets, which are used for all Intel sockets.

In this image is the rest of the Intel mounting goodies. At the left, we see the screws and washers that go into the backplate for LGA115X and LGA1366 installs. In the middle, we have the LGA115X and LGA1366 standoffs above the LGA20121 and LGA2066 standoffs. We also see a set of four screws used to mount the brackets from the previous image to either set of standoffs.

The rest of the hardware is universal. The cross-bar mounting bracket is on the left and comes with a pair of screws to mount it. Next, we see a set of four wire fan mounts. There is a small tube of thermal paste, good for a couple of mounting attempts, and even a Y-splitter fan cable to connect to a single PWM header on the motherboard.

The manuals and instructions come in six languages, including English, Spanish, French, Russian, Polish, and German. All of them start with an introduction and included parts lists. Following that, there are sections of instructions with text and images for LGA2011/2066, LGA115X, and AMD to ensure that the cooler is applied correctly in whatever compatible system it is you are trying to mount it on.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
