Installation is quite easy but does take a little while to do. Firstly screw in the appropriate mounting bracket (for me LGA775) using the screws provided. This bracket uses the clip in mechanism with 4 pins. Simply align the cooler with the correct orientation and then push in the pins and the cooler is secure. The downside of this method is that sometimes the PCB can bend a little due to the size and weight of the product.
