Installation Tips

Both new coolers are universal and can be installed on all contemporary platforms. In case of LGA775 and Socket 939/AM2 their retention goes through the mainboard PCB with a backplate. As I have already mentioned above, heatpipes going in different directions at the cooler base, make them not very compact. Namely, there was only one way I could install these coolers on ASUS P5K Deluxe mainboard, because otherwise the heatpipes would hit against the heatsink on the mainboard power components, the chipset heatsink or even memory DIMMs. As a result, the only possibility was to install the coolers with the heatpipes turned horizontally (in a Tower case):



Moreover, I also had to remove two memory modules from the DIMM slots closest to the CPU, otherwise the bottom of the cooler heatsink would be pressed against them. if you are using standard memory modules (without tall heats-spreaders), you won’t have this problem.

TITAN CoolIdol fan is topped with a wire grill protecting overclockers’ fingers. EVERCOOL Transformer 6 doesn’t have a grill like that, however its fan has four blue LEDs:

Looks very pretty, doesn’t it?
