Installation and Finished Product


To go along with the Intel LGA115X installation instructions, find the proper holes in the backplate, and key the studs into the holes, so that they lock, and will not spin. Once that is sorted, slide a rubber washer on top of each of the studs to isolate this component from the motherboard.

The next step is to align the studs with the socket holes in the motherboard and install the backplate. Put a finger or two on the backplate, and flip the motherboard over, to move onto the next step.

Whether on AMD or Intel, unless on LGA2011/2066, this part of the hardware installation is all the same. Drop the white plastic spacers on the studs, with the proper end up, as shown in the instructions. The next step is to install the top ring, ensuring that the holes for mounting the cooler are left and right of the socket for a typical installation orientation. Then lock it all into one mass of hardware with the knurled nuts.

We added some paste, dropped the cross-bar in place, and screwed it down on the front of the tower with little to block the screw, while at the back, that is what the deep valley in the fins was for. Now installed, we see a bit of the fan is missing behind the memory, which is a very good thing! We can also see that the fan does cover the majority of the fins, and even has a gap at the bottom to add a bit of airflow to the power delivery systems of your motherboard.

Not only is the fan offset for zero issues with the memory in front of the cooler, but they also give you a few more millimeters extra so that no matter how tall the RAM may be, it will be easy to remove without the need to mess with anything else. This is also as low as the fan can sit, as it rides the top of the cross-bar mounting screws.

Taking a step back, we can see that for those of you with LGA2011/2066 motherboards, as shipped, there is no interference on either side of the cooler when it comes to memory. However, adding a second fan could limit access, but if the case allows, the fan could be raised to enable sticks like ours to fit.

Once installed into the chassis, we can now see the Justice II as many will see it on a daily basis. The matte black top fin blends well with the motherboard and video card, and the simplicity of their styling can be appreciated as well, sort of a "sleeper" style cooler, if you will. As to the installation, we had full access to all the screws to mount the motherboard, connectivity of the PSU wiring is not impeded, and we still have full use of the top PCI-e slot on some motherboards.

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.
