Installation is quite easy and we would hope so. As per normal you put the correct screws through the backplate and then up through the motherboard. Once you have done this you can screw on these black plastic pieces to hold it all in place.

The next step is to put the corresponding retention brackets (depending on socket type) on top of the previously installed black plastic screws and then tighten them down with the included thumb screws.

Once the above is done it is time to apply thermal paste and mount the Aidos. After applying thermal paste by your preferred method, you set the cooler atop the CPU, insert the Raijintek bracket across of the base plate making sure to align it in the holes properly then screw it down on each side to the retention brackets.

Once the cooler is installed it is time to attach the fans. This is done by putting the anti-vibration protectors into the fan then pushing them through the designated holes.

  1. Why is every single review for this cooler different? I have now come across 5 different reviews with 4 of them for certain using this same exact i7 4770k and 2 show pretty poos numbers with this being one of the two and the other two using the i7 and the third using a cpu I can’t think of atm showing performance that beats the hyper 212 evo in just about every area except a 1 degree loss with an overclock idle temp. I also seem to get conflicting opinions from people who have purchased this cooler pretty much matching the reviews. It either shows there is some variance in installation or the build quality of the cooler. Unfortunately I’m waiting for one in the mail and can’t even pawn it off to my son since he his cpu runs hotter then the skylake I planned to use it with. I wasn’t hoping for much but considering the low tdp of skylake expected to at least be able to safely overclock my i5 6400 to 4ghz but all these reviews makes me wonder.

    • Unfortunately without access to the same cooler we can’t re-run the tests to find out if it was a seating/fitting issue. I don’t think we would be able to find out if it’s a random problem across manufacturing without access to a large number of coolers and ran the tests again in lab conditions… something that simply isn’t possible for us to do.

      TL:DR – Best of luck, hope you get a good one 🙂
