Since we saw no default hardware on the bottom of the head unit, it makes sense that we get an Intel mounting plate seen on the left and the AMD bracket seen on the right. Between them is a fully universal backplate. It is used for both AMD and Intel, with a very dense foam used to isolate the plate from any motherboard.

The next group of hardware we are showing off is the rest of the kit for mounting this cooler to any supported motherboard. At the top is a bag of long and short screws for one of the fans, and below that, we see the tightening nuts, threaded spacers, washers, LGA2011/2066 standoffs, and a tube of ID-TG05 grease. At the bottom, there is a bag with the long screws that go through the backplate along with four short screws to mount the brackets to the bottom of the head unit. The last couple of bags are also for mounting of the fans, and both include a short set of screws as well.

The manual for the DASHFLOW 360 is well done. Things start with a parts list, ensuring you have all you need on hand before tearing down the system to replace the cooler with this. Things migrate into sections for AMD and Intel mounting, leaving no questions as to how it all is to be installed. Inside, there is also a section on wiring, which will help those with RGB motherboards, and also explains how to get control of the lighting if the motherboard does not support RGB.

The box containing the DF-12025-RGB TRIO kit has the fans inside of it obviously, but there is also another box of hardware, as well as another guide on connectivity. Inside of the hardware box are splitter cables for power to the fans as well as one for the RGB connectivity. Also in the box is a remote sensor and a remote for those without native RGB control, and you will find more sets of fan mounting screws inside as well.

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.
