Accessories and Documentation
Here is be quiet!'s universal back plate. It has dense foam at both ends to keep the steel from damaging anything, and a layer of plastic applied was applied before that, to keep the entire thing isolated from the motherboard, which keeps things from shorting out. They also include a nondescript syringe of thermal paste; it's good for a few applications.
Here at the top, is the pair of AMD mounting legs that you would need to add to the base of the cooler when using an AMD system. At the bottom is the pair of Intel mounting legs for Intel purposes. In the middle is a wrench to aid in your installation of the cooler, but this is more to hold the hardware in place while you screw in the studs from behind the motherboard.
The rest of the hardware includes LGA2011 mounting screws at the top, with a row of black plastic C-clips to lock the studs in place for AMD and other Intel mounting. The third row offers four studs that run through the back plate, and are clipped in with the plastic clips in the groove of each stud.
There are four countersunk screws for the mounting legs, and four nuts to secure the cooler. The last row offers nuts that screw down over the studs to sandwich the motherboard, and the four nuts go on the outside of these for the final mounting.
If I have thoroughly confused you about the mounting of this cooler, the instructions do offer some pretty good drawings and diagrams of how this all goes together. Since this is also a multi-lingual manual, what is provided in text is pretty brief, but if you look closely at the images, they will get you through any installation with relative ease.
