Installing new mount type for antec kuhler 920

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all, purchased an antec kuhler 920 for my 3570k. It comes with the new mounting kit - an extra plastic ring and 8 black clips instead of blue/green ones, as well as thumb screws. The installation instructions i got are for the old mounting system and bear little resemblance to what i have!

I've looked through various threads on the forum and had a google but I can't seem to find a clear picture, the video I saw linked has been removed and descriptions are a little ambiguous. I am guessing I can use the plastic ring to save from having to line the pump tabs up with the metal bracket. However I am unclear how exactly to use e black tabs, I am guessing I have to clip the fat parts with the thin part, with the metal bracket in between, but I am not certain. Also, am not sure why there are two different lengths of thumbscrew.

Any advice or pics would be really helpful, I'd rather not mess up the installation or break any bits!

I'm just not 100% clear on how to use the two part black plastic clips that replace the blue/green ones. I think one piece goes above and one piece goes below the metal ring but it's hard to tell! I guess I'll give it a go... The instructions are for a different setup entirely with normal screws, no thumbscrews and single piece plastic spacer things!

Here is the Thermaltake Water 2.0 installation guide, it uses the new asetek mounting brackets like your new 920 bracket.

I personally have the Water 2.0 Pro, so when you mentioned your new brackets I knew exactly what you were talking about.
