Next, remove the protective plastic from the water block and install the four black plastic spacers in the holes on the back.
Then place the water block on top of the CPU and place the universal bracket on top of the water block. You may have to orientate the tubes away from any obstructions that may be present, like your northbridge heat sink. Once the bracket is installed, the last set of nuts can be tightened down to secure the water block to the CPU. Again, refrain from over tightening the nuts.
At this point we’ll install the radiator, but as stated in the instruction manual, we must ensure there are no air bubbles in the water block. To do this, with the computer on its side, lift the radiator above the water block and tap on the tubing with your finger. Once the air has been evacuated from the water block, insert the radiator into a 120mm fan location and secure it with the four screws provided.
The next step in the installation process is to install the potentiometer into the PCI bracket supplied. Then install the fan control into a spare PCI slot in your case, and finally install the knob on the potentiometer.
As a final step, attach the fan and pump power connectors to the motherboard and the installation is complete. Now we can put our new water cooler to the test.
