Accessories and Documentation
I didn't just mean to show the hardware spilling out of the box, but rather I wanted to show that there is in fact a box packed deep inside that safely contains all of the hardware needed.
The more universal hardware is what I am showing here. You will receive a set of four wire fan clips and four strips of anti-vibration material on the sheet to the right of them. You also get a tube of PH-NDC compound, a Y-splitter for the fans and a ninety degree hex wrench for mounting the cooler to the base.
To install the PH-TC14CS to an Intel motherboard, this is the bit of the kit you will need. There are four legs, spacers and thumbscrews to mount the top plates and the back plate to the motherboard. If you have an LGA2011 motherboard, you do away with the back plate and spacers in lieu of the set of screws made specifically for that socket.
For AMD users, there is a set of screws on the left to mount the top plates over the spacers with the use of the stock AMD back plate that comes shipped on the motherboard.
I'm not really sure how this got away, but in the end I noticed it wasn't in any images. This is how Phanteks makes this cooler a PWM cooler. Just plug this into the motherboard ahead of the Y-splitter, now both fans can run on their PWM fan curve.
The instruction sheets definitely help get the job done. They start with a parts list so you know if you have all the hardware you need at the start and then moves into the installation process with colored highlights in the images to help show what the text is explaining.
