Accessories and Documentation

The universal back plate is for both AMD and Intel mounting. It has holes to allow for socket screws and to make room to clear surface mounted components on the motherboard. This side, the Intel side, already has plastic spacers attached to the plate. For AMD users, you want the reverse side of this plate, and you isolate from the motherboard with a pair of stickers you will see in a bit.

The first things to fall out of the hardware box were the socket LGA2011 screws with a mounting instruction sticker on the bag, and the options for powering the fans. The Y-splitter on the left with black ends is just a power splitter. The one with the beige connections has a resistor built into the splitter to reduce fan speed and noise if you want a silent solution in your build.

In another bag you will find this assortment. There are screws used with AMD mounting, a tube of thermal paste, the AMD isolation stickers, the LGA775 adapter, four black spacers, four screws, and the nuts to secure the mounting hardware to the motherboard.

Here we have four black rubber fan mounting straps at the top with the Intel top mounting legs on the left, and AMD legs on the right of the cross bar I showed you earlier.

For AMD users, socket orientation is of no concern. Simply use those small screws and secure all four of the AMD and Intel legs together, then mount it to the motherboard. This way you now have screws on all four sides and can mount the cooler blowing out the back of the chassis even if the socket didn't allow for that before.

The included FZ fans got a revamp and you are looking at the pair included in the box. They are built with sturdy black frames surrounding thirteen white fan blades. As will the HAVIK140, there are no LEDs; just the white on black on nickel color theme is what you get with the HAVIK 120.

The instructions come all folded up and open to eight sections, front and back. Everything you need to know about the installation can be found in here for both AMD and Intel. Along with the included parts list there are large detailed drawings to take you through step by step on mounting the HAVIK 120.
