Does installing Tuniq require MB removal?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
It would be yucky if motherboard is required to be separated from the case... But I don't see how it would work (don't have the package in hand yet) with heat sink that big without removal.

How did you guys do it?

you have to remove the motherboard to install the tuniq unless you have access to the backside of your motherboard. they have a backplate that goes onto the back side of the motherboard taht the tuniq bolts on to.

also depending on the motherboard, case, PSU and how big your hands are it might also require removal of your PSU ( or at least unbolting it to slide it a little) also as some of the screws are a little hard to get to if you have a tight fit in there.

Ouch, I knew I should have only used one screw on the motherboard when I assembled it 1 week ago! (kidding).

Thanks guys.
