Installing NH-D14 SE2011 is easy and this is an area which it has a significant advantage over other offerings. Although the process is fairly simple, the instructions guide is something that some may reference to in order to double check the correct method is carried out.
There are four double sided bolts bundled with D14 SE2011, these are screwed into the mounting holes on the LGA2011 socket. Soon after this is done the brackets pictured below need to be placed on top of these bolts – to have the cooler in the traditional orientation so that the heatsink/fans are facing the rear exhaust fan inside a computer chassis the brackets should be placed in a horizontal fashion with the brackets bending outwards, not inwards. Next simply apply the thumbscrews to secure these brackets down, using a screwdriver to completely tighten. After this, all that needs to be done is apply thermal paste, place the cooler on the CPU and screw down. It really is as simple as that.
SecuFirm 2 mounting kit is easy to fit and offers an excellent method of securely attaching the cooler.
