Required Tools

PH2 Philips Head Screwdriver

Packaging Content
Choose Connector Cable

All-in-One

Single connector PWM cable for simultaneous control of pump, VRM and radiator fan speeds, as well as pump speed monitoring.

Individual control

Control the speed of Pump / VRM Fan / Radiator Fan by individual PWM signal.

3x 4-Pin Header on motherboard required

Note: The reported speed for the pump is 50% higher than the real speed.
(i.e. 1500 RPM reported speed = 1000 RPM real speed)

Connect the PWM control cable before mounting the cooler on the mainboard.

Preparation

How (not) to mount your water cooling AIO?

Steve from GamersNexus explains you the mistakes to avoid while assembling your water cooling AIO in your PC case.

Radiator below pump

Radiator above pump

Risk of bubbling noise

Installation

Only install the mounting modules in this orientation

Refer here to learn more about how to apply thermal pastes.

For AM4: The offset mounting leaves parts of the heatspread visible; this is intentional, as the CPU hotspot is off-centred, but perfectly covered.

Please make sure that you plug all connectors on the motherboard,
For PWM cable (all-in-one) = 1 plug
For PWM cable (individual control) = 3 plug

BIOS Configuration

To get the best out of your cooler, it is recommended to adjust the fan speed control in the BIOS, follow this guide to adjust your PWM.

Contact Frame Installation

Attention

Secure the socket backplate in one of the 2 ways shown below depending on the status of your motherboard.

    Is the motherboard outside of the case?

  • Yes
  • No

Place a thick padding (e.g., packaging inner card) under the socket backplate to support the socket backplate on a flat, horizontal surface.

Open the Independent Loading Mechanism (ILM), align and place the CPU into the socket

Attention

Keep the removed parts for reassembly in the future. The ILM must be reinstalled if the motherboard is to be returned for service or warranty.

Attention

Align the CPU Contact Frame with the top edge of the CPU. The gap (highlighted in red) is made to allow the CPU Contact Frame to fit with future CPUs.

Warning

Loosely engage all 4 screws by 2 turns before tightening them in a cross pattern evenly to avoid damaging the CPU.

The thick padding can be removed after the CPU Contact Frame is tightened.

Apply painter’s tape on the backside of the motherboard to secure the socket backplate. Lay the motherboard flat on a horizontal surface.

Open the Independent Loading Mechanism (ILM), align and place the CPU into the socket
