Accessories and Documentation
Part of the hardware kit has us looking at the universal Intel back plate for mounting the cooler a bit later. It is drilled so that it can sit in any orientation, and accounts for LGA775, LGA115X and LGA1366 sockets. We also see that we are given just one pair of fan clips.
This image shows us the wrench offered to help get the cooler mounted, with the thick cross bar behind it. At the back are the pair of Intel top brackets to go to work with the backplate and a few other bits.
Here we see an LGA775 preload spacer, four standoffs, and the pair of AMD locks that go at the end of the cross bar and grab onto the stock socket bracket. Then we find the LGA2011 standoffs, screws for the cross bar, and screws for the top bracket to secure to the standoffs. The last row gives us the studs for the backplate, and rubber washers to isolate the plate as well as locking the studs into it.
With many markets to cover, be quiet! offer multiple instruction sheets. When unfolded, these will walk you through the preparation, through the installation, and with the additional insert covering the warranty terms, if anything does go wrong, everything you need is right here to be had.
With pretty much just a smooth round frame to support this 120mm fan, the multi-grooved blades should help increase the airflow from a flat bladed version, and with nothing around the fan to drag any air, it also helps to reduce noise emitted from it.
