To install the Water 3.0 Ultimate, you first have to assemble the holder that secures the block, as shown in Figure 9. There are two frames available, one for Intel and one for AMD processors, as well as two backplates. Socket LGA2011 (and LGA2011-v3) CPUs use the stock backplate.

The last step is to install the system inside the computer, attaching the block on the CPU using the four screws and the radiator on the top panel. Of course, you must have a computer case that supports a 360 mm radiator. We installed the fans outside blowing outwards.
