Installing the Yasya
The Yasya comes with everything needed to mount up to all current Intel and AMD sockets. It also comes with one set of fan clips and a small packet of thermal paste. Both the AMD and Intel mounting systems are completely tool-less and go together fairly easy.
The mounting clips slide in a clip into the base. You have to squeeze the mounting tabs slightly and push it into the base until you hear it click.
The fit between the mounts and base is quite snug so them just popping out when you don’t want them to is quite unlikely.
The mounts are universal for the Intel LGA sockets. The mounting tab is slotted to allow it to be used for all the sockets. The interesting part will be getting all the pins lined up with the motherboard. The 1366 and 775 may not be too hard as they are the extremes of the slots; the middle sized 1156 could be a little tricky.
With the Yasya installed we can see that tall ram sinks can be an issue if the cooler covers a RAM slot. On the DX58SO the 4th slot is covered, but the other 3 are clear of the fins and the spring clips. Now on to the testing.
