In order to demonstrate the installation process for R1 Ultimate we are installing the cooler on the Intel LGA2011 socket.
The first step in the process is to apply four standoff screws into the four corners of the socket boundary plate. Once these have been tightened two brackets must be placed over the screws, in order to achieve the traditional orientation of having the cooling fans face the rear exhaust inside a computer chassis it is necessary to configure them in a horizontal fashion as per our picture. The only other stage left is to apply thermal paste to the CPU, position the cooler over the CPU and tighten the screws. CRYORIG provide a handy magnetic screwdriver to reach each screw (without this you will really struggle) the screwdriver tool fits down a cavity inside the heatsink.
And in only a few steps you can be up and running with R1 Ultimate, it really is that easy. Were very pleased by the quality of the cooler itself and the tools/components used to install this CPU cooler, CRYORIG have done a great job.
