BASE & INSTALLATION

The most critical aspect of installation is that the heatsink be securely mounted. A firm mating results in good contact between the heatsink's base and the CPU heatspreader and more efficient heat conduction. Ideally it should also be a simple procedure with the user having to handle as few pieces of hardware as possible.


Like most Scythe heatsinks, the base is nearly perfectly flat and the surface is polished to a mirror finish.


The installation procedure begins with mbounting clips being attached to the base with four tiny screws.


On AMD boards, the backplate and plastic retention bracket must be removed prior to installation. The board is flipped upside down onto the heatsink and bolts with thick padded washers are inserted through the newly vacated mounting holes.


The bolts screw into the mounting clips producing a very secure mating. A similar procedure is used for Intel mainboards.


Fully installed on our Asus 785G test board.
