The installation of the V6 GT is simple, yet well planned by Coolermaster. We like the fact that we did not have to deal with difference brackets for each of the Intel sockets. The retention brackets are adjustable to fit sockets 775, 1156 and 1366.
Even the motherboard back plate is capable of handling all AMD sockets as well as ones from Intel. Here we have the motherboard and back plates both installed and ready for the CPU.
A crossbar is what secures the cooler to the motherboard. To do so requires the Allen wrench and the 2 spring-equipped bolts which are threaded into the motherboard bracket, all of which Coolermaster provides.
