In a large bag from the hardware packed in the top of the box, you will locate this. There is the speed wrench on the left for mounting the cooler, the ZM-STG2, Intel mounting legs, AMD mounting legs, socket protector and pad, and a fan Y-splitter adapter.

In a smaller bag you can find the rest of the mounting hardware minus one last piece. Here there are the studs in the back that install into the back plate, three sets of mounting screws, a case badge, and the slide on locks for the studs in the back.

Just like we usually see for Zalman, we get the universal backplate that will use the studs and their locks to give you a secure and solid place to mount the cooler to.

The manual has little as far as flash is concerned with the drab white, black and grey used. Besides the rendering of the cooler at the bottom, there is a full compatibility list at the top of the front cover.

It kicks things off by giving you a list of things not to do, and gets followed up by the specifications. To make sure you are ready to install the cooler, compare your parts with this list to be sure ahead of time if you have all of the correct parts you need.

The rest of the manual is much like you see here. There are long descriptions of the steps and what is being shown in the accompanying images. Then again I didn't read too much, I was able to get the information I needed from the images, like exactly what way to mount the legs to the base of the cooler, images worked much better for that question.
