After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Next you secure the mounting plates to those posts using the included screw caps. These simply lock down without any sort of spring pressure.
To secure the heatsink you must first remove the center 140mm fan which will expose the mounting screws.
We did mention that the NH-D14 is extremely large?, so much in fact that it extends beyond the top of the motherboard. If your motherboard allows it you can gain some additional space by rotating the heatsink 90 degrees.
Your situations can, and will likely, vary.
