Installing the Lion Square is quite easy. With AMD systems, all you have to do is install it like your stock cooler. For the Intel systems you have to first attach the retention brackets.
The backing plate is hard plastic, with metal inserts. It also comes with a sticky pad to aid you in keeping it in place for installation.
When it comes time to install the Lion Square you’re going to need a long screw driver to reach the mounting screws.
With the Cooler installed on our test system there is all kinds of clearance to the motherboard components.
