Accessories and Documentation
The Nexus FLC-3000 comes with a good assortment of hardware. Nexus includes mounts for both AMD brackets at the top left and right, as well as mounting for both LGA775 and Core i7 processors. The bottom row of hardware consists of four Mylar washers to keep from grounding to the motherboard, the LGA775 backing plate, TIM, and four mounting screws.
In my short time of doing cooler reviews, I have to say this is the first time I have run across these "clamp" type bracket mounts; the process of installing the brackets is as easy as loosening a few screws, sliding in the bracket and tightening the screws. Nexus did a great job of mixing the ease of installation with a really sturdy mounting system. I used the AMD mounting system to get the cooler on our testing rig. I couldn't have been more pleased, it attaches simply with just the tightening of two screws on the bracket itself.
A close up of the leg of the LGA775 mounting bracket shows Nexus, again with simplicity in mind, just made the appropriate hole for LGA1366. The back plate is not made to accept the LGA1366 mounts, though. With all this bare metal exposed to the motherboard it now becomes really clear why they ship the Mylar washers to keep this unit from cutting into the face of the motherboard.
The manual itself is a simple installation guide and parts list. They show very good images of both the space requirements and for those with HTPC's you get one last confirmation of the fit prior to the install. Both AMD and Intel mounting setups are covered well, but the simplicity of the design on the clips makes it pretty much self-explanatory.
