Installation of the Cryorig R1 Universal is quite simple and easy. Cryorig kept everything nice
and simple while the mounting procedure is explained clearly in the manuals you find in the bundle. The thermal paste is not
pre-applied and comes in a syringe and its enough for a few applications. In case you decide to clean
the fans or unmount the cooler in future, there will be enough thermal paste
left. The overall pressure on the CPU is quite good as this cooler, with its
1181g is definitely a heavy weight. The bundle includes two mounting kits, one for AMD sockets and one for Intel
sockets. This cooler supports AMD AM2(+), AM3(+), FM1,
FM2(+) as well as
Intel LGA 1150, 1155, 1156 and 2011. Unfortunately, there is no
compatibility with AMD FM3 and Intel LGA 775 and 1366 sockets.
Although this cooler is a huge dual-tower cooler it's compatible with all memory
modules. The reason for that is that there is a slim fan where the DIMMs are.
