Accessories and Documentation
Here we have the Intel universal back plate and LGA 775 spacer pad with 3M backing to secure the pad to the plate. On the black steel plate, there is a pair of socket retention screw holes near the middle, and on each end is a clear plastic sticker to isolate the plate from the board. Each end also offers mounting holes for 775, 115X and 1366.
The top mounting brackets are what I have in this image. On the left is a pair of AMD brackets, the cross-bar center mounting bar and the Intel brackets on the right side.
Almost all of the rest of the hardware is shown here. On the left you have the mounting through bolts for either AMD or Intel sockets with bracket screws below for mounting the top hardware. In the middle there is a bag of thermal compound, a wrench and the cross-bar screws. This leaves the LGA2011 bolts and the white nylon spacers on the right.
You will also find a single pair of wire fan clips, and some super simple, well written and illustrated instructions for both AMD on one side and Intel on the other. To be honest, the kit is pretty self-explanatory, but it never hurts to have the instructions for when you get stuck or are unsure of the process.
You also receive one Glide Stream fan from Scythe. This is a 1400RPM maximum speed, 120mm fan, which comes in all black offering nine blades with grooves in them to help scoop and direct the airflow while allowing the fan to run virtually silent at speed.
I also took an image of the back of the fan for three reasons. I wanted to show that the back of the blades look pretty normal, you can see the power draw and model number of the fan, and of course you can see that it offers a 4-pin connection since this is a PWM controlled offering.
