With the VGA cooler lying face down, place the VGA card face down onto cooler, allowing the mounting screws to pass through the card's mounting hole. Be careful with this step!
Next, place an insulation spacer on each mounting screw
Attach a spring nut to each mounting screw and fasten with a screwdriver. Give each spring nut a few turns until it is secure:
Our air cooled MSI 7600 GT is ready to roll! Note that now our card is double the width and will take up an extra backplane slot.
The copper core has enough distance between it and the surrounding components, not to cause any damage:
The time has come to install your card. There shouldn't be any problems here, just find two adjacent backplane slots and make sure that the card wont interfere with any nearby chipsets that could prevent the card from being installed correct.
