3. Installation

The installation process is easy provided that you taken a few minutes to read the printed instructions. The black plastic base must be placed on the four holes of your 775 motherboard, and then be secured using the four (4) black plastic screws, as you can see at the following picture. For AMD users there procedure is even easier - just press and clip.

Make sure that the orientation of the plastic base is like above so that the produced hot air "escapes" the case via the case fan, otherwise performance would be degraded. An obvious problem we encountered is that the plastic base is very close to the motherboard's copper heatsinks.
