I did a test install and, in hide-sight, I should have put marks on the C1 shroud and the case so that I knew how to line up the cooler with the screw holes.

that was the first problem i had, lining up the screw with something this big was more difficult than i expected, i should have taken off the middle fan instead of following the instruction.

For me the practice install has two purposes;
1/ To be sure everything is lining up properly and mounts up as it should
2/ To figure out exactly where to index (set) the cooler so mounting screws line up and start properly.

I usually use features on cooler and motherboard for indexing, but sometimes index marks are needed.

Trial assembling is common practice for mechanics. Nothing worse then damaging an expensive gasket trying to get something lined up .. when a few minutes trial fitting it to be sure of placement (or that you have proper replacement) would have saved the day. tongue.gif.

Agreed. Next time for sure!!

Installing many coolers and installing big coolers is the difference. You are in a very small minority of people with problems installing the Cryorigs .. and there are many many people who have installed them with little or no problems .. less problems than any other big cooler with NH-D15 and PH-TC14PE being similar in ease to install.

But by all means keep on blaming the Cryorig mount. thumb.gif
Will be very interesting to see how many more people say the same thing you are already hearing about Cryorig installation.thumb.gif

I will say I had difficulty getting it mounted the first time. I removed the middle fan, that way you can see that you're lined up. It took a lot more pressure than i thought it would. I also felt that I made a mess of the thermalpaste. So i decided to remount, and doyll is right it does get easier after the springs are compressed. All that being said, I really do think its a good mounting system, there are some horrible ones out there.

There are a lot of comments like this floating around, and I am really confused by them - especially the reference to pressure being required. I have mounted the R1, C1 and H5 at least twenty times each, and never once had to apply any pressure. When I say "never", I mean never....and literally no pressure. If you drop the cooler on, the mounting screws line up and can be started prior to the base making contact with the CPU. It was designed that way so that no pressure is required.

Out of curiosity, are people attempting to fully tighten one of the mounting screws prior to starting the other? That would be the only thing I can think of. This is literally the easiest mounting kit I have used, and I am pretty sure I have used just about all of them.

On my system with the cooler in place the screws would not start into the hole without applying a decent amount of pressure to the screwdriver

For me, is was all about my inability to line up the screws with the holds. I was adding the C1 to an ITX mobo in a ML07B ... and I just couldn't see the @#@#$@ holes in the base.

As said a few times in the last few posts ... a dry mount test run plus marking up my shroud / case with guidelines would have solved my mounting issues.

I see you are using an AMD, so it could well be the case there. The Phanteks and Noctua mounts have that issue on AMD, also. I haven't had the opportunity to use the AMD mounts, so I would be purely speculating.

The blind fishing for the holes is not fun, even after the markup. But, that would really pertain to any topdown cooler in that case.

Just got work Cryorig is almost ready to release their "CUSTOMOD" colored shrouds for R1.
I like the interactive display for comparing shroud and motherboard colors: thumb:.

Will also be releasing three different Cryo-Pastes.
