Accessories and Documentation
Packed in the box right next to the fan you will find a large plastic baggie with all the hardware you will need to mount this into any AMD or Intel system listed on the box.
Floating freely in the large bag there is both sets of back plates as well as the top of the socket hardware. The AMD kit on the left and the universal Intel mounting on the right keeps the same mounting hardware at this point, as did the other Asetek solution.
Inside of a pair of smaller bags you will locate the rest of the hardware needed for a full installation. The left bag contains four long screws for mounting the closed corner fan to the radiator, four medium lengths and in this instance, three short screws for mounting the radiator to various cases. There is also a set of four washers to be used for the screws going through the fan; this will ensure you shouldn't puncture the radiator during assembly.
The bag on the right contains the blue Intel adapter and the green AMD adapters that get snapped into the top mounting rings. Along with those you will find the mounting screws, along with "nuts" that go into the back plates. To help with spacing as well as holding the back plate in place, there are two foam strips with tape on both sides so you may secure the plate to the motherboard.
I figured I had better show the fan at some point, and without further ado here it is. Antec went with a seven blade, 120mm, all black fan to go along with the cooler. While I didn't get a maximum CFM rating for this fan, my guess would be around 40 CFM at lower speeds, and at the full 2000 RPM, I would venture to say the fan is in the 70 to 80 CFM range.
The instructions are very clear and well illustrated. On the front you get a full parts check list, and it seems I got a lot of extra screws, or they forgot to add the smaller ones to the list. At this point you decide if you are using the AMD or Intel hardware and get underway. This side will get you through the first half and you will have the back plate installed to the back of the motherboard.
On the reverse Antec takes you through the rest of the steps. Mounting into the case, mounting the head unit, and even how to plug the unit in are all covered. There is no reason you should have any issues with installation, unless of course the radiator doesn't fit where you want to place it.
