Accessories and Documentation
Breaking up the hardware a bit to make it easier to see, we have the top brackets for AMD on the left, the locking ring in the middle and the Intel top bracket at the right. On the bottom left side is the AMD backplate, while on the right is the one for Intel.
They stayed with the same metal inserts for the back plates, but the top plates got a new two piece universal solution for setting the screws at the top in line correctly. Follow the instructions carefully, these can be tricky. Lastly we have the mounting foam for the back plate that has adhesive on both sides to keep the back plate attached to the motherboard.
In the hardware there is a Y-splitter that will allow both 4-pin PWM fans to attach to this and run from a single header on the motherboard. In front of it is the larger LGA2011 mounting screws.
The rest of the hardware is the four washers for spacing the fan that isn't attached to the case, the standard AMD/Intel mounting screws and eight fan screws that are long enough to go through the case and the fan to grab the threads in the radiator.
Here is the pair of included PLA12025S12HH-LV fans that Thermaltake includes with the Performer. The white blades with black frames will fit in any case build and both are 4-pin PWM powered, so the noise is only up when the heat levels demand it to be that way. Otherwise it just chills in the corner silently.
The user manual is very well written and even if you have used Asetek coolers before, I strongly suggest you give it a quick read and pay particular attention to the clips that insert into the top brackets of the mounting system. If that is installed incorrectly, the cooler will not mount properly. They cover everything from assembly of the unit, to the installation, both with great images, but also with easy to understand text.
There is also a fold out pamphlet that has the warranty information. I am likely blind or it isn't there, but I can't seem to find any information without registering a product to say how long this warranty really is.
