Accessories and Documentation




First off you get the BQT T13525-Mf-PWM fan with its 1300 RPM maximum and the 200mm cable terminating in a four-pin fan connector.




The box of hardware, which was on top of the cooler as you open the packaging, is full of all kinds of assorted hardware to go along with the various sockets this cooler is compatible with.




Flanking both sides are the AMD mounting brackets with the Intel 1155/1156 brackets sitting between the 1366/775 brackets in the middle. At the bottom, on the left are four black spacers and on the right are the mounting screws that pass through the motherboard.




In this image we have the LGA2011 brackets surrounding the wrench that is used for both the 2011 specific screws on the left and the nuts that secure the brackets for the rest of the sockets as well as this 2011 hardware.




Here we have the padded, universal backplate to get the Dark Rock 2 installed. You also get a packet of 3mm M3 screws to mount the appropriate brackets to the base of you cooler for installation along with a small syringe of TIM to get you on your way to cooling.




The paperwork that comes with the cooler offers a full parts list so that you can be sure you are ready to go ahead and install the cooler before you get part way in and realize you are missing something. As for the installation instructions, considering the limited space with the multiple languages being covered, they still manage to do a thorough job of describing the steps with both really good drawings and text to alleviate any confusion.
