Use a Noctua cooler? Upgrading to Sandy Bridge-E/LGA2011 in a few months when its released? Well, Noctua have continued their tradition of supplying their customers with SecuFirm2 mountings free of charge. The NM-I2011 kit allows Noctua users to upgrade to Intel's upcoming LGA2011 socket for Core i7-3000 (Sandy Bridge-E) processors. The NM-I2011 is backwards compatible with all Noctua retail coolers since 2005 and will be supplied to users free of charge after they upload proof of purchase on Noctua's website.
Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua's CEO says:
We feel that product quality and service quality should always go hand in hand, so we're determined to give the best possible support to our customers. Having provided free mounting upgrades for the last generations of Intel and AMD platforms, we're happy to announce that we will continue this tradition with the NM-I2011 kit for LGA2011.
We always like to think of our coolers as safe long-term investments, and even if you bought one of our first models six years ago, you'll still be able to upgrade it to the latest socket technology free of charge.
