Installation


 


The installation of the LV12 is simple and easy. As we said before, the thermal compound is not pre-applied. The installation process does not take too much time as the mounting process is self-explanatory. The pressure on the CPU is good and there are no compatiblity issues with this cooler whatsoever. As far as the support goes, the LV12 can be mounted on Intel LGA 775, 1150, 1155, 1156 and LGA 2011 sockets as well as on AMD AM2(+), AM3(+), FM1 and FM2 sockets. Since the LEPA LV12 is a medium sized tower cooler there should not be any compatibility issues with memory DIMM with large heatspreaders. Installing this CPU cooler on an ATX, as well as a mini ITX motherboard did not cause any issues.
