Choose Your Path:
You've come to another fork in the road. If you have an air cooler (marked F), skip to Level 6B. If you have an AIO cooler (marked E), continue normally, and skip Level 6B.
A. Remove the Plastic Twist Ties
There should be 4 twist ties holding the wires in the back of the case. Remove them by cutting or untwisting them.
B. Unscrew the Top Fan
While holding onto the top fan, remove the four kb 5*10 screws that hold the top fan to the case. Gently lower the fan and pull the wire through the case opening before setting it aside.
C. Set Aside the Fan
The fan you removed will be reinstalled to the front of the PC case on steps G-I. Set it aside, but keep it close.
D. Unscrew the Fan Bracket
Unscrew the two thumb-screws holding the fan bracket at the front interior of the PC.
E. Remove the Fan Bracket
Remove the fan bracket from the PC as pictured above.
CORRECT: Fan blades pointed inwards, “X” shaped guard showing.
INCORRECT: Fan blades pointed outwards, no guard showing.
G. Place the Fan onto the Bracket
Place the fan onto the fan bracket, “X” shaped guard showing. Position the fan towards the bottom of the fan bracket with wires pointing to the left.
H. Flip Over the Bracket
Note: The wire should be opposite the thumb-screws.
Holding the fan in place, flip the bracket over.
I. Secure the Fan
Install the fan using the four 5*10 screws which you removed from the case earlier (additional screws can be found in the white NZXT box that came with your case).
J. Flip Over the Bracket
Flip the bracket (now with the fan) over again.
K. Verify Proper Orientation
The “X” shaped guard on the fan and the thumb-screw grips on the bracket should now be facing upwards.
L. Take Out the Fan and Radiator
Take the 120mm fan and radiator that came with your AIO cooler out of its packaging.
M. Place the Second Fan
Place the second fan onto the bracket, with the “X” shaped guard showing, and matching the first fan’s wire direction placement.
N. Place the Radiator
Place the AIO radiator block on top of the second fan, with the two pump tubes oriented at the top and facing outwards.
O. Flip Over the Bracket
Holding the bracket, fan, and radiator in place firmly, flip the bracket over while maintaining the position of all parts.
P. Align All the Parts
If you’re having difficulty with the tubing getting in the way, it may help to position the bracket near a ledge. If any parts became misaligned, reposition them.
Q. Screw in the Fan and Radiator
Install the fan and radiator onto the bracket using the 30mm (long) 6-32 fan screws and metal washers that came with the AIO.
R. Ensure Proper Positioning
When installed properly, the bottom fan should have its “X” shaped guard visible, the radiator tubes should be at the top right, and the cables should be opposite from the thumb-screws.
S. Slide in the Fan Bracket
Running the fan cables through the 2 large case openings, slide the bracket into the PC with the “X” shaped guard showing on the bottom fan.
T. Reattach the Fan Bracket
Attach the bracket back onto the front interior of the PC using the two thumb-screws.
