Installation should be rather quick no matter which system setup you have, since there are minimal parts needed for installation. We used an AMD setup for installation and had to first remove the fan by releasing at least two of the latches holding it to the heatsink.
Before you install the system you will need to make sure you have the standard AMD brackets that came with your motherboard. Since I swap out CPU Coolers a lot I had to go and dig out the support system, which included four screws and two plastic brackets.
Just simply align the support brackets on the AMD mount and fasten the screw on both sides and you’ll be ready to go, assuming you don’t encounter any clearance issues with your motherboard.
Installation wasn’t as easy as I would hope for due to the obstructions on my motherboard. Since I’m using an ASRock 890FX Deluxe5, there’s a large heatsink right next to the CPU, had it been a few millimeters over or shorter it would have made my life a lot easier. Then I also had to yet again encounter problems with my RAM which has high plastic heatspreaders.
