Installing a Hyper T4 vs 212 Plus

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, my current cooling setup has this awful daisychained fan controller ruining my cable management because the fan connector for the cooler itself doesn't have any PWM, so to solve this problem(also so I can overclock better) I'm getting a CM Hyper T4. I can't find any videos on how to install it, is installation the same as a Cooler Master Hyper 212?

Looking at the bracket on the 212, it isn't the same. Installing the T4 was quite easy, though. It uses a clamp (a bit like the one on the CPU socket) instead of screws.

Okay, did you have to take your motherboard out to fit the backplate? I'm really slow when I upgrade computers. and unplugging everything, taking out the motherboard, and putting it back in will be like building it all over again because in my case you have to take the PSU out and ruin your cable management for the board to fit frown.gif

Wait, I'm looking at the .pdf for the installation manual, do you even need to use the backplate that comes with the cooler for FM1/AM3+ sockets?

As I recall, it uses a backplate bracket for the cross-bars on which then goes the clamp style pressure bar.

Look it up here - http://goo.gl/yfftgB

Personally I don't like that style too much, lacks of pressure.

Still better cooling than stock, right?

That is for an Intell setup.

You don´t use the backplate , The T4 fits on with that clamp bar . If you have nimble fingers you should be able to do it without taking out the MB.

Yeah, I know, I was just pointing out the clamp style of pressure for both setup.

Anyways, I usually put some paper towel or cardboard in to the rails where clamp cross-bar goes, so I raise the point of touch for the clamp. This way you can put some more pressure on it.

I had to use the backplate to install my T4, so.. It must be different for AMD sockets (I installed it on a 1155 board).
