So I normally enjoy installing parts but heatsinks are never fun at all. They always just do not want to install fine the first time for me at all. Well let’s get this install going so we can fire up the system. This is going to be installed on a AMD system so we have to remove the black plastic bracket there. After this is removed we have no bracket at this point. So I started to install the top parts of the bracket but while doing so you have the CPU bracket on the back side of the motherboard tray put into the holes .
Now that you have the top completed finish off with doing the bottom bracket. At this point you have to get the heatsink on and set. There are 2 screw holes that go through the heat sink to allow you to screw it into the motherboard. This is hard if you leave the top fan on but in my case it was just better to leave it on since there was not enough room inside the case.
After this is all completed you have the this finished result. I personally like the way this heatsink works and looks over the Noctua D-14.
