You have to take the original bracket off, it comes with all of its own gear. But looks like someone already has the same thing and it works.

Thanks.

FYI, it doesn't work very well, use another cooler.

::cough:: ::cough::

Definitely pick a better cooler. There's a reason why it's so cheap... it's not as good.

Regarding Cooler Master GeminII:

I've read countless professional reviews along with many personal one's before I purchased this cooler and its supposed to be one of the most effective out there. Specially with two 120mm fans.

Price doesn't mean much. This cooler was over $50 when it first came out. Not to mention it cools the entire mobo, including memory, not just the CPU.

Basically if you drop this cooler on anything REMOTELY hot it wilts.

Not what I've heard...just a few (also look at newegg reviews):

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coo...i_7.html#sect0

Good price, good cooling, and cools mobo, GPU, & RAM. I have two 2000rpm fans that are whisper quiet, yet move twice as much air as the fans which the GeminII was tested with (750-1200rpm).

Those are compared against things not even in the same class. It would seem superior to those.

DFI of course. I have nothing against EVGA, but c'mon it's a DFI!

Idk, judging by all the pro and personal reviews, this thing cools lava. I was going by the numbers, not comparison.

It doesn't come with fans either...so long as you get good fans (as I have), you can be blowing cold air on to this beast at 2000rpm without a whisper.
