Starting the installation of our Switch 810 system with the cooler means we need to set up the bracket for Intel or AMD use. The back plate is universal on both coolers and the 120/140 versions have the same install process. So we just choose the appropriate side of the back plate, apply the Intel spacers or AMD covers and then pass through the large screws in the appropriate holes. For AMD we can also then build the retention clip which makes use of the Intel parts to form a part which surrounds the socket.

Once these are in place we put the backplate behind the board, pass the screws through and sit the retention brakcets on a set of spacers. We then secure the parts using four thumbscrews.

With the main part of the install complete we rest the heatsink on the CPU and then use the metal bar to clamp it in place using two pre-attached screws. Both AMD and Intel installs allow us to position the heatsink in either direction and our final step is to use the rubber attachments to add the fans to each side of our heatsink.

With the heatsink (and CPU/memory) installed on the motherboard we can then install it in the case which is a simple process due to the spacious main chamber (which supports CPU coolers up to 19.5cm and cards of 375mm in length). Our PSU slots in at the base and the wiring passes to the back of the motherboard tray.

Our next step is to install the graphics card, securing with thumbscrews and then our drives are put in place with tool free installation of 3.5/5.25" devices and four screws used for 2.5" SSDs. Finally we route the case wiring, connecting up the components as required and the system is ready for use.
