Accessories and Documentation
It doesn't matter whose name is on the kit, the hardware is all the same as the other Asetek units. Here you have the AMD top and bottom plates on the left, the lock ring in the middle, and the Intel bottom and top mounting hardware on the right.
You also get four bags full of goodies. At the top left are the LGA2011 legs with the universal set in the bag below it. On the right there is the top bracket hardware, isolation foam pads, and the metal inserts for the back plates. The last bag at the bottom offers eight long and five short fans screws and eight washers to give you everything you need for any installation.
We saw the paperwork when we first opened the box. What I didn't see at first was that they also stashed a CD with the software on it, into the folded paperwork. So once the X40 is installed, you can either insert this disc, or venture to the NZXT website for the software.
One side of the paper offers the Intel mounting in eight steps. It also offers a full listing of the components included so you can verify ahead of time that you have what you need to get the X40 into your rig.
The AMD mounting instruction don't offer the contents section, but it does take the same eight steps to install the X40. Basically everything is the same except for steps one through three where you add in the pads and pick the correct top and bottom mounting kit.
The last bit in the kit is the FX-140RX-PWM fan included with the X40. While the specifications are really good, I also like the contrast of the nine white blades against the fans frame, and more importantly, as it is attached to the radiator in your chassis.
