I just got done installing this cooler on my 3700x. There aren't instructions in the box, but there is a QR code that takes you to them, and they're animated which is nice. You may have to remove the motherboard to install the cooler if your case doesn't have a cutout so you can hold the cpu backplate in place. Make sure to pay attention to the 2 plates that screw to the cpu backplate, they're different from each other and go on a certain side. On a quick glance at them you might not see the difference, and looking at the instructions on a phone it can be a bit difficult to see it.

I am planning for an extremely high performance build. I will possibly complete the build in March and when Ryzen 5950x is available. However, I want to accumulate most components this BF expecting good discounts on them. Should I wait or pull the trigger on this? Any suggestion on ATX full cases that can accomodate this giant cooler?

For the past few years, bf and cm deals were terrible and the best deals where usually deals leading up to bf/cm

I see. However, looking at the price history, this cooler was priced at $140 and now even with 5% coupon it is more than that. I dont think it is a deal of any kind. I am not sure about the availability issue if that makes it a deal.

I don't think it's ever been available for $140. Are you talking about the 360 version perhaps?

The Phanteks Eclipse P500A can support a 420mm radiator on the front, and it's a great case.

great aio, be sure to throw out the stock fans and get corsair ML140 fans, they'll perform better and quieter.
This review shows different. As heat-sink fans the Arctic fans are better cooling and quieter than the ML140 pro. I am willing to assume that the "pro" version of the fan should be in some way better than the non-pro version.

I'd love to know what you end up getting for an OC. With PBO I've seen little reason to upgrade the stock cooler on my 3700x. Paying $100+ for 2-300mhz isn't worth it for most people. Gone are the days of 1Ghz or more from OCing. Core 2 Duo and Sandy Bridge were the golden age.

Lian Li 011 XL
https://www.amazon.com/Lian-Li-PC...NK7KK?th=1

I have the 280 version of the cooler on this case and it fits well for top mount. I did manage to fit this in a fractual design meshify C case for front mount but depending on your video card you may face some problems fitting it. my 3070 with this cooler front mounted was a no go. so i upgraded to a lian li.
My friend also has the 280 cooler and he was able to fit top mount on the midtower size of the Lian Li 011 Dynamic.

the most challenging part of this cooler is that back plate for AMD. Somehow you have to manage holding the cooler in place, holding the back plate and screwing the cooler to the back plate all at the same time. its possible if you get creative or just get someone to hold the backplate for you while you screw it in.
