If you want to install this cooler on an LGA115X motherboard, you will want to use the plastic backplate provided for you. AMD and Intel installation both require the top brackets on either side, with multiple holes at the ends to accommodate both makers.

The rest of the hardware you are given comes in small plastic bags which are all individually labeled. There is a bag for screws that go into LGA2100 and 2066 socket mounting mechanisms, a packet of MX-4 and the screws to mount the top brackets, AM4 screws used with the factory backplate, and a set to use with the provided backplate for LGA115X.

The box does not include any sort of paper manual to install the cooler. You will either need a QR code app for your phone to go directly to the manual, or if you have another PC around, you can also obtain it from the link provided. We went online to have a look, and all of the instructions are straight forward with good images to go along with it. That combined with the simple nature of the hardware allowed us to install the cooler in just a couple of minutes.

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
