How do you install a Coolermaster Gemin II S524

I bought a Coolermaster Gemin II S524 with a Sabertooth 990FX R2.0, but the heatsink brackets are pre-installed. Do I remove them?

Yes and replace them for the brackets provided with the new cooler.

Are there nuts on the back of the MB or do they screw into the backing plate ?

Either way they have to come out. Instructions should have been in the box with the cooler.

Easy just unscrew the stock retainer and replace via instructions provided with new cooler, also available online if needed.

CoolerMaster Fans
I've never had a problem with noisy fans, until I got my HAF922 case, with CM fans. I cured one by cleaning it, but now I got a noisy fan on the CM CPU HSF, and it is not dirty enough to throw it out of balance. Oddly, it seems to occur when I leave the patio door ajar, and the room temperature...

Do any of you have this case, or have any first person feedback about one? I'm moving my PC from a basement to a new home office, and I feel like I need a case with some better air-flow and cooling. I read some reviews that seem positive, but I figured I'd toss the question up on here too.
