To mount the Alpine 64 Plus onto your processor you don't need any fixation kit as it is quite the same as the AMD cooler. Meanwhile you will need a screedriver to release a bit the fixation then screw it back again to ensure a very good pressure on the processor. That's it, it takes less than one minute to mount this cooler.

This cooler only compatible with AMD systems has been therefore installed on a Llano system. You can compare it to the AMD cooler on the pictures bellow. As you can see it won't hurt your oversized memory. Our Kingston HyperX memory kit that has got very high heatspreaders can still fit in the closest slots to the socket.
