Installing the TD02-E is very similar to the process in most AiOs. We’ll begin by attaching the fans to the bottom of the radiator in a pull configuration. This set up will give the fans the largest amount of airflow. Select the eight long screws from the hardware bag and snug both fans into place at the corners making sure to orient the wires to back of the case.
We’ll now install the backplate. First we must put the stand off screws into the correct holes for our socket. Silverstone has labelled each of the holes with the socket type to make things easier for your. For an Intel installation orient the backplate such that the plastic bits are facing towards the motherboard. In addition to keeping the backplate from bending towards the motherboard the plastic bits also hold the stand off screws snug which keeps them from falling out. With all four stand off screws installed simply align the screws with the holes in the motherboard and press the backplate into place.
With the screws passed through to the front side of the motherboard secure them with the four black plastic stand offs.
With the socket ready for installation we’ll attach the radiator to the top of the case. Select the eight short screws and while holding the radiator with one hand, start two of the screws on opposite ends of the radiator. With the radiator held in place you can now finish with the other six screws and with a screw driver.
We can now attach the pump to the CPU. Prep the CPU by applying a grain of rice sized bead of thermal paste to the center of the processor. Next align the ends of the clips of the pump with the stand off screws and press the pump firmly to the processor. Secure the pump with the spring thumbscrews initially by hand and finally with a screwdriver until they are tight.
All of the hardware is now installed; we can now attach the electrical connections for the TD02-E. Begin with the three pin connector from the pump and attach it to the CPU_FAN header on the motherboard.
Next with your radiator fan wires passed through to the back of the case, attach them both to the splitter. The splitter should then be attached to an open fan header on your motherboard.
With those connections made the installation is now complete and you can go ahead and turn your PC on.
