The T12 shares the same fitting method as the S24 and S36, with the first being to attach the mounting bracket to the pump/cold plate.  The two halves simply click together, and although it requires a fair bit of force it's actually remearkably easy to pull them apart again.

Helpfully, and to avoid confusion Fractal have separated all the fittings out for AMD and Intel.  We're using the bag of fittings supplied specifically for socket 2011.  It only takes seconds to thread the bolts through and attach the washers and nuts.

The pump then screws directly to the motherboard, or through to a back plate if required by your motherboard.  At 90mm thick it takes up a fair bit of space at the rear of the case so you'll need to be wary of high standing kit on your motherboard, especially if you have RAM with high heatsinks to the left of your CPU as per 2011

The Kelvin T12 fits nicely into the Cooler Master Test Trooper that we use for all our heat sink testing.  With 90mm of depth it's unlikely that it will fit into the roof of many cases, but may fit in the front of those with removable 3,5" drive bays and front fan mounts.

TTL - can you add the 4.6Ghz graph into the performance section of the review.

There's a reference to this chart in the review but the chart isn't shown.
