Installing The Water3.0 Pro
Two types of mounting screws accompany the Water3.0 Pro: LGA 2011 and everything else. Spring loaded within knurled plastic tubes, the steel shafts lock into screw holders on the mounting bracket.
The Water3.0 Pro replaces a case’s exhaust fan in typical installations. Since our case's original fan became a spare part, we mounted it as a top-panel exhaust.
Thermaltake's Water3.0 is thick enough to completely obscure our motherboard’s rear DIMM slots, but that shouldn’t be a problem with most non-X79 Express-based boards.
