Installing the Vanquisher is quite simple. In both cases (LGA775 & AMD) the cooler can be installed without having to remove the motherboard. The LGA775 mounting utilizes the four push clips on standard LGA775 boards, and on the AMD side, the three lug socket clip is appreciated instead of the normal single center lug clips. If you were lucky enough to keep the pre-applied TIM intact, then it is just a matter of removing your old cooler, mounting the Vanquisher, and seating the TIM and securing the mounting clips. Plug in the 4-pin connector and installation is complete. With the LGA775 mounting clips, the Vanquisher can be orientated either horizontally or vertically. With the AMD clip, the cooler can only be mounted vertically.
