Installation

Installation of the cooler is very simple and takes a matter of minutes.

To install the cooler you take the 4 Philips head mounting screws and feed them through the appropriate mounting hole for the CPU socket you are using.

You then place the rear mounting back plate in place with the mounting screws in the proper mounting holes.

Be Quiet then provides you with 4 plastic clips that hold the mounting screws in place.

Once you have your back plate mounted you then mount the two mounting brackets to the bottom of the contact block with the screws provided.

Now that you have the mounting brackets installed you can install the double threaded mounting bolt in the bottom securing it with the lock nut on top.
