Accessories and Documentation
The first bits of hardware we are looking at are the all metal brackets used for mounting. For AMD users, you are going a bit old school, and you will need to mount the large bracket with the clips to secure the cooler to the stock bracket. For Intel users, you are given a pair of legs for LGA115X sockets, and a second set is intended for LGA2011 usage, and both kits are clearly labelled.
We also get a second set of fan clips, and to the left, we see a small syringe of paste. In the middle, we find the Intel LGA115X backplate with the studs already in place, and to the right are the four screws used to mount the hardware to the base of the cooler.
The instructions aren't all that bad to use, but they aren't great either. Basically, you unfold the paper included to find a section on what comes with the cooler, one for AMD installation, one for LGA115X and another for LGA2011. All of which are basically the same with a few renderings to help point out important things, with limited test to help along with the job.
ID-Cooling also sent along a second fan so that we could have a look at what sort of performance gains were to be had with a push/pull configuration. While it will not show in the charts, we will be sure to make mention of the results at the appropriate time.
Since the rest of the images to follow will be with only one fan, we figured we would be sure to get an image of the SE 214X with both fans on it, so that you can gain perspective on size, and that it looks much better with the black and red on both sides.
