Compatibility and Installation
The Cooler Master X6 Elite is compatible with every modern PC platform. The installation procedure is detailed in the included manual. You can download an electronic version of the manual from the official website (2.5 MB PDF file).
It was very easy to install the cooler on our LGA2011 testbed. First, you attach the included fasteners to the cooler’s base. They already have spring-loaded screws at their ends.
Then you apply some thermal grease, mount the cooler on the CPU and fasten it with the included key.
That’s all! The X6 Elite is ready to work on your CPU. The distance from the bottom fin of the cooler’s heatsink to the mainboard is 50 millimeters, but the fan hangs 5 millimeters lower and touches the low-profile heatsinks on the memory modules in the two nearest slots.
Otherwise, the Cooler Master X6 Elite had no conflicts on our mainboard.
