Installation Tips

The complete list of supported graphics cards is given in the Technical Specifications section of this review. The cooler can be installed on any of them very quickly and easily. First you fasten two metal plates bundled with the cooler to its base, then you insert the retention spindles into their corresponding holes and then set the graphics card on top of them. After that all you need to do is fasten the graphics card with spring screws at the back of the PCB:

It is totally up to you to decide if it is worth it or not, we hope our article will help you to make this decision. In conclusion I would like to say that the recommended retail price for XIGMATEK BATTLE-AXE VD964 is seta round $45.
