Installation is pretty quick and simple with the ISGC-200, a little easier than the ISGC-100. However the ISGC-200 uses the pushpin design, which isn’t always as reliable as a back plate installation. The first step is to make sure that you have a clean CPU before you apply the provided thermal grease. We will be using the LGA 775 installation method for this review.
Two pushpin brackets are provided with the cooler. They need to be attached to the base of the cooler via four screws with the pushpins facing away from the base.
After getting those attached it’s just a matter of aligning it on the motherboard and pushing in the pins. To align it on the motherboard make sure the van is aligned vertically with the motherboard. Then check to see which way the airflow is going on the fan; two arrows are found on one side of the fan which indicates the rotation and airflow direction. The fan should be blowing out the hot air to the left, or rear of the case.
The ISGC-200 takes up a little bit more room than the ISGC-100, but still leaves plenty of room to attach everything and have plenty of airflow.
