Thermaltake provides a great Intel and AMD installation guide on their global web site, and here are the steps as outlined there. First the Intel Install procedures.
When we tried the install as outlined above, it went off without a hitch and was a pretty painless operation. I love the universal backing plate Thermaltake developed a while back, and continues to use with their new coolers.
Next, here is the AMD installation procedure.
I did not physically install the Frio Advanced on an AMD platform, but as you can see, it appears to be a pretty easy endeavor.
During either installation method, the fans will need to be removed to gain access to the mounting screws, but as I showed you earlier in the review, removing the fans takes just seconds to accomplish. If you decide to use the PWM function of the fans, make sure you plug both fans into a 4-Pin motherboard header that is able to be controlled in the system BIOS.
