Installation Tips

CoolJag’s Falcon 92-Al and Falcon 92-Cu are designed for installation on LGA775 and Socket 754/939/940/AM2 mainboards. The procedure is simple. As I mentioned above, two fasteners for LGA775 platforms are already secured on the bottom of each cooler by default. If your platform supports K8 processors, you should replace the fastener and hitch it at the teeth of the standard plastic frame around the socket. You won’t even have to take the mainboard out of the system case to do that. The cooler can be oriented in two possible positions on Socket 754/939/940/AM2 – this depends on the position of the CPU socket.

It’s more difficult to mount the cooler on LGA775 and you have to take the mainboard out. You then fasten cap screws into the back-plate and use them to secure the cooler’s fastening clips with other screws. I advise you to find and insert thin spacers between the back-plate screws and the mainboard (the manufacturer doesn’t include such spacers into the kit).

The Falcon coolers can be oriented in any direction on LGA775 mainboards and the cooler’s pipes are unlikely to conflict even with tall elements around the CPU socket.

The coolers are compact at 106x122x111 millimeters:

The aluminum model weighs only 392g while the copper one is heavier at 736g.

The cooler fans are equipped with three green LEDs to delight each modder’s heart:

The following table summarizes the coolers’ specs:

Looking up on the Web, I found that the copper model is currently offered for $42-$53 and the aluminum model for $34-$40.
