What comes in the hardware box is a bit much to take on in one images, so for now let's stick to the Intel gear. We find the LGA115X back plate in the middle with spacers and thumbscrews at each corner. To either side are the top brackets that sit on top of the spacers, and along the bottom are the four LGA2011 socket screws.

For AMD users, leave the stock back plate on the motherboard, and stack the white spacers under the top brackets, and then send a screw through each hole into the backplate to secure this bit to the motherboard.

As for the more universal gear that is shipped with the NH-L9x65, we get ourselves a 90 degree screwdriver to assist in mounting the cooler. We also are given a tube of NT-H1, a Low Noise Adapter, and a shiny metal case badge.

We are also given the trio of manuals for the various types of installation that the SecuFirm2 gear is capable of. Not only do you get a parts list to be sure you are good to go, but with clear instructions and rendering to help guide you along, installation is a breeze.
