I set the long screwdriver in with the AMD hardware kit. To mount the NH-C14, you use the stock back plate, and set the white nylon risers on the top side. Then set the curved mounting legs and keep them securely mounted to the back plate with the four screws.




The Intel kit comes with a universal steel back plate isolated with a hard rubber membrane. You simply slide in the studs and the hex heads lock into the plate. Slide this through the motherboard. This time you will use the black nylon spacers, covered with the Intel mounting plates. Instead of screws, Noctua uses thumb screws to secure the mounting on top of the motherboard.




There is also the universal package with all the additional hardware you may need. There is a tube of NH-T1, four case screws, a Noctua case badge, 140mm fan spacing mounts with rubber ends, and a set of four rubber fan clips for those who don't like screws. Noctua figures if you end up using only one fan on the cooler, they will give you options to mount the second fan and put it to use in the case. The wiring surrounding the images has the LNA adapter at the left, the ULNA adapters on the right, and a power lead adapted to power two fans from one header.




In a folder you will find instructional fold-outs for both AMD and Intel. Both are very well written and have great illustrations to help guide you through the installation. Using a few Noctua coolers before, I found nothing unusual with the mounting of the cooler, once i took the fan off that is blocking the hole.
