Step 1

After installing the CPU in its socket, apply a small amount of thermal paste to the processor's integrated heat spreader (IHS).

Step 2

Use the spatula to evenly spread a thin layer of thermal paste across the IHS, ensuring full coverage.

Step 3

Screw the four shorter threaded posts through the motherboard into the back plate.

Step 4

Slide the legs of the water block over the posts, until the copper back rests against the thermal paste.

Step 5

Place the four springs over the posts, resting against the legs of the block.

Step 6

Partially thread each of the four thumb nuts onto the posts. Then, in opposing pairs, tighten them the rest of the way to compress the springs against the water block.
