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

Step 3, Attach the mounting plate, this fits over the waterblock in the recessed area
Step 4, Align the mounting plate holes with the holes on the motherboard and attach the proper screws. 775 installations require the silver screws as the thread matches the back plate. Tighten each of the 4 in a star pattern until they are snug.
Step 5, attach hoses and leak test (at least 24 hours or however long you are comfortable with.)
