Installation Process

In order to demonstrate the installation process for Megahalems we are installing the cooler on the Intel LGA2011 socket.

The installation process is really quite simple and only takes a few steps. The first thing to do is attach four stand-off screws to the socket plate and place the two steel plates over the screws. For the traditional orientation of having the cooler face the rear exhaust within a computer chassis it is a necessity to have these plates as pictured below. Next the thumbscrews are placed over the threads and tightened, thermal paste is applied to the CPU, the heatsink is placed onto the CPU and the crossbar is positioned over the top of the baseplate and screws are then tightened. It’s advisable to tighten each screw a few turns and then move to the other screw so that even pressure is applied.

The installation process takes very little time and is a very secure method of attaching a cooler to the motherboard.
