There are several ways to install CPU coolers. The installation varies depending on the design. In principle, the motherboard should be removed - provided there is no recess for installing coolers.
Installation of a push pin cooler:
With this type of installation, the mainboard can remain in its housing. The cooler is placed over the pins on the board, and the pins, pointing away from the heatsink with the arrows, are pushed through the board. This is done crosswise to avoid one-sided tensioning of the mainboard.
Installation over mounting lugs:
With this simple installation, the cooler is simply hooked into the AMD mounting lugs and possibly slightly screwed in to increase the contact pressure.
Installation via mounting hardware:
Note: With this type of installation, the mainboard must be removed if there is no recess in the housing for installing a cooler! Look through the supplied assembly material and find the parts required for your installation. Install the cooler according to the instructions.

The length of the backplate threaded sleeve is different on some AMD AM4 motherboards. You can get a free compatible backplate from us on request. Please send us a message with the subject 'Freezer 34 - AM4 Backplate', the desired shipping address and proof of purchase to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the standoffs are not long enough, the base area may be damaged during further assembly!
The number of fans connected in series depends on the output of the motherboard. Motherboard fan connectors typically have an output of 1 to 2 amps. The current rating of our fans can be found on the back of the motor hub and under the technical details.
Example using the Liquid Freezer II 360: The water pump and the VRM fan together have 2.7 W/0.225 A and a P12 PWM fan has 0.96 W/0.08 A.
Water pump and VRM fans as well as 6 fans in push-pull configuration can easily be connected in series on a 1 amp motherboard connector.
