Installation and Clearance Issues

For clarity, the installation pictures below used a SuperMicro Z370 mITX motherboard and an i7-8700K CPU. For testing, the cooler is installed on an Aorus Z390 Master motherboard with an i7-9700KF CPU.

To get started mounting the cooler to an Intel socket 115x motherboard, you’ll need to install the backplate. The pins slide around in each of the arms to ensure proper alignment.

Next up, you’ll secure the studs at each of the corners and tighten them just snug. There are two sizes included one set is for the 115x socket and the other is for the 2066 socket.

 

Since the thermal paste is applied at the factory, you don’t have to apply any additional. Simply sit the pump/CPU block over the CPU and tighten down the thumbscrews. Make sure to use a criss-cross pattern to ensure even thermal paste spread.

The radiator installation will vary per case. Corsair left the fans unattached to the radiator to allow you to choose the best installation options for your specific situation.

  1. Have been looking to replacing my now “noisy pump” 360 AIO. Per Tom’s review a Corsair H150i RGB Pro XT, 360mm Radiator, Triple 120mm PWM Fans will cost me $181 at Amazon. Moreover the fans are not RGB LED and are quite plain. Then having to purchase extra or missing RGB fans will run me an additional $45 each. I love the Corsair brand…but for their new with RGB fitted AIO costing upwards to $300 is hard to swallow and for many a clear $$$ deal-breaker. It also makes me think that the entire (industry) AIO marketing is going bonkers and needs to return to reality for the man on the street!
