Installation and Finished Product

The first thing we need to do is to slide the threaded ends to the center of the backplate for our LGA115X test system, align the holes, and set the backplate onto the back of the motherboard. Clearance is excellent, but keep in mind, there is no tape, so you need to hold the plate in place when flipping the motherboard.

Once flipped, you can install the Intel standoffs. Screw them in until you run out of threads, and yes, the assembly will still be loose once the standoffs are fully installed.

After applying thermal paste to the CPU, we can then install the head unit. With the logo placed in line with the motherboard, we found no issues securing the head unit, not any problems with the tubing rubbing against the memory.

With fifteen inches of tubing between the head unit and the radiator, it allows for many more options when it comes to locations to install the H100i PRO RGB. For any of the other wiring, the length of the cables was more than enough to hide them and keep a clean look at the end.

Once the power is applied, we found the H100i PRO RGB running with the RGB lighting already active on the head unit. It was cycling through many colors, of which we happened to catch it while purple, but the options are pretty much endless to match any build.
