Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 AIO CPU Cooler Review

The installation process for the Liquid Freezer 240 is very, very easy. In-fact, I wish all cooling manufacturers did it like this.

As a disclaimer, we installed the AIO on a motherboard using the LGA 1150 socket. The process below reflects that.


First, you need to install the retention plate – for Intel sockets, in this case. Simply put it in place, and rotate to lock.


Next is the backplate. All you need to do is slot it in place – although it must be oriented a certain way, as there are protrusions coming from the motherboard socket which prevent it from lying flush otherwise.


Four standoffs then screw into the backplate.

After that, all you need to do is put the cooler in place and tighten it down with four thumbscrews.

It is a very easy process and takes hardly any time at all. In-fact, I spent more time screwing the fans onto the radiator than I did actually mounting the cooler itself.
