Accessories and Documentation
The hardware shown here includes the fan mounts at the top left with a package of TIM placed below it. The middle bag contains the Intel and AMD hardware for mounting the hardware to the board and the cooler to this hardware. There are shorter screws used for LGA2011 that are in the bag on the right.
Above the thumbscrews and washers we just looked at, you need to install a pair of the cross braces and they are marked for Intel or AMD and that leaves the mounting bar in the middle that holds the cooler to all the hardware.
Before you mount the cooler with the center bar seen here, be sure to place in the inserts, otherwise your nuts that secure this will dig right into the recessed aluminum holes.
The backplate is universal. Flip it one way and you are ready to use it with AM2 and up on the AMD side and if you flip it over you can install it with any Intel since LGA775. Speaking of the Intel mounting, you will notice three holes on each of the tabs; the plate actually will sit crooked for certain socket installations.
The paperwork sent along with the Dark Knight Night Hawk Edition is the User's Manual and the warranty information. The warranty info covers the two year plan, while the manual takes you step by step through the installation for either AMD or Intel processors. There are drawings and good explanations to guide anyone through the install, pretty painlessly I might add.
