Installation

In Figure 9, you can see the backplate for installing the TD02 on Intel socket LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156, and LGA1366 systems, with the screws inserted. Socket LGA2011 CPUs use the stock backplate. For AMD processors, you must use the other side of the backplate.

Place the backplate on the solder side of the motherboard and insert the four spacers shown in Figure 11 on the component side.

As we mentioned before, the block comes with the holders for use with Intel CPUs preinstalled. If you will use the TD02 on an AMD processor, you must exchange the holders for the appropriated ones.

The last step is to install the system inside the computer, attaching the block on the CPU using four spring-loaded nuts and the radiator on the top panel of the case. In order to not interfere with the memory modules, we had to install the fans outside the case, both blowing outwards.
