Testing and Installation:

The V6 GT cooler features a built in LED light on the top of the cooler that can be changed to 3 different colors (or turned off all together). You can pick between Purple, Red, or Blue (all pictured below).

Installation of the V6 GT is going to require you to install a back plate and will require you to remove the motherboard. You will also have to remove both fans from the V6 GT to get the cooler attached to the mounting brackets. Once you have the fans removed the cooler installs pretty easily and I didn't encounter any issues with the installation of this cooler.
