The back plate is universal to both AMD and Intel; you just need to mind which holes to use. For Intel mounting, the back plate can only go one direction to accept the socket screws. On either side of that plate you will see the AMD extruded aluminum mounting brackets that can be easily swapped out with two screws on each piece.

SilverStone also sent clear plastic stickers for the AMD side of the back plate, eight corner pads for the side of the fans touching the radiator, and a small tube of TIM at the bottom. They also include an LGA775 adapter piece and a Y-splitter cable to power both fans from the same fan header on your motherboard.

On the left side in this image above you will see the eight long screws used to mount the pair of fans to the radiator. Then you have the top mounting nuts with the springs on them, four plastic risers, and eight small screws to use as optional fan screws. Then on the right side, at the top, you have the through bolts for the back plate, and below those are the LGA2011 mounting screws.

To cool the radiator, SilverStone has opted for this pair of 120mm fans pictured above. They both use black frames, but they have nine curved blades with notches cut into them to direct and channel air flow, as well as matching the theme of the TD03 very well.

There is also the manual that was lying on top of the packaging inside of the box. SilverStone do a fine job of describing and showing how to install the cooler for both Intel and AMD processors.

What is important inside the manual is this. Make sure you know what all the parts are for, as it will make the assembly for AMD easier if you know what you should be looking for.
