Accessories and Documentation
Along with the cooler, we also find quite the assortment of hardware. In a bag with a sticker denoting "Intel" on it, we find a universal backplate with tape on it to attach it to the motherboard. On either side, we see top plate components that lock together on the head unit, which provides a place to run the LGA2011 screws on the left, or the rest of the Intel socket set to the right.
Along with the Intel screws, and the AMD ones you are about to see, you need to slide on the spring and one of the washers, run the screws through the top plate, and then use the nut last, as it keeps the thumbscrews in place to make mounting much easier.
This is the AMD mounting kit. While you have to use your stock backplate, there are a pair of top plates that snap together just like the Intel gear, and it has many holes to accommodate various AMD sockets. We also find that there is a specific set of screws for AMD mounting.
There is also another bag with two groups of fan screws in it, and an Allen wrench to use with them. The smaller screws allow this to be mounted to a chassis, through the steel or aluminum of the case, and into the radiator. The longer set of screws can do the same for mounting, but are used to run through the fans.
We are also given a braided PWM Y-splitter cable to power both fans on the radiator from a single header. Additionally, we are given a syringe of Fractal Design Zero thermal paste, which contains enough for three or four mounts.
The last bits of hardware in the box are this pair of fans with seven white blades, and the hub, surrounded with black frames. Both fans use four-pin connectors for power, and we spun one to show that these are in fact the Silent Series HP 120mm fans that the specifications chart says we should have received.
There is also the literature that comes along for the ride. Here we have a well-written and illustrated manual that takes you through the installation process from beginning to end, and leaves no questions unanswered. There is also a terms and conditions insert covering the warranty information, and lastly, a red "do not return to store" notification sheet.
