Thermaltake MaxOrb CPU Cooler

» Discuss this article (0)


When you read the instruction pamphlet, you’ll find out which of the included parts you need to install your MaxOrb correctly. For my LGA 775 motherboard, I didn’t need the mounting plate, so I was happy about that. The first thing you need to do is remove the old CPU cooler and if necessary, clean the CPU. I used 90 percent alcohol and a Q-tip for this task.

Follow the instructions for how to correctly mount the CPU cooler for your socket. Below, you can see what the mounting bracket looks like completed and ready to go for my motherboard. After the mounting bracket was set, I put some thermal paste on the CPU before I put the cooler on.

Once the bracket is set, just hook the retention clip on the bottom of the mounting bracket and then the longer side of the retention clip will lock over that gold screw. Lock the retention clip into place with the provided screw and plug in the fan cable. Below you can see the cooler installed and what it looks like when it’s turned on.
