Installation and Clearance Issues
Installation of the Enermax AquaFusion 240 is guided by included Installation Guide. I strongly advise to look it over so you do not damage your components by incorrectly installing your CPU cooler. I am using Intel socketed motherboard with this AIO cooler so my backplate had to be adjusted to use with 1151 socket. I had somewhat tough time keeping the mounting pins together until I laid the board flat down socket up. The pins would just come out from the mounting holes.
Once I have got all of the mounting pins in the right holes screwing enclosed nuts in place was a piece of cake. Just a few minutes and Installation was complete. The thermal paste used in my benchmarking is the one that is included with this package (Dow Corning TC-5121). As you have noticed, I am using my test bench for the benchmarking so the distance between my radiator and motherboard tray is relatively close. Your installation of the radiator and its distances from the board might vary. Connecting all of the RGB wires to the motherboard was pretty easy. Just daisy chain them and you are good to go.Article Index: >> « A Closer Look at the Enermax AQUAFUSION 240 RGB | Test System and Benchmarks »
