Accessories and Documentation
As we saw when I first opened the box, here again is the user guide and case sticker. The guide takes you through every step of the installation of the Silver Arrow SB-E for both Intel and AMD. There are renderings to go along with the written instructions that make the guide very easy to follow and get it installed to your board of choice.
Inside of the white hardware box is a sealed plastic bag that contains all the hardware you will need to get the Silver Arrow SB-E up and running.
The universal components are what I grouped here. There is the Y-adapter to power two fans off one header with 4-pin connections. There are six wire fan clips for up to three fans to be installed and the tube of CFIII thermal paste. That leaves us with the little wrench that will aid in the socket hardware.
For some Intel installations , you are required to insert the square spacer on the left, it goes into the back plate. In the middle is the sheets that hold the anti-vibration pads I used on the cooler. That leaves us with eight plastic washers on the right to be used during the mounting of the socket hardware.
The four screws at the top go through the back plate and into the motherboard. Then you grab the risers on the left and screw them down with the plastic washer down (Intel). Once the top plate is installed, you mount it with the shorter screws at the bottom. The thumbscrews on the right are used for AMD installations in place of the other four.
This plate is what mounts the cooler to the hardware you install on the motherboard. It sets across the top of the base plate and gets screwed into a plate with the holes on the right and left sides.
Here we have the universal top mounting plate that the plate from the last image gets mounted to, to secure the cooler. The black plate on the right is the universal back plate and uses those white washers to isolate this from the motherboard.
