Accessories and Documentation
We found the first bits of hardware inside of the bag, but they were not separated into other bags. We found the AMD brackets for the head unit, and there is a universal backplate to go with this kit. We also get a metal case badge of the Gamer Storm logo.
The rest of the kit was found in two other bags. The one to the left still has the set of four LGA2011 mounting screws in it, but we removed the goodies from the other bag. There we found the LGA115X/1366 brackets, plastic isolation caps that lock the studs into the backplate, and four screws to mount the head unit to the rest of the hardware.
Off to the right, we find fan screws for a single radiator kit since this was an early sample, but they have provided us (and the retail kits) with a full set to use. We also see the studs for the backplate, and four small screws at the bottom to mount the brackets to the head unit.
The user manual provided covers everything you will need to know. Things start off with a checklist of goods, so you can be sure you have everything you need to get this AIO installed and running on your system. Both illustrations and text will guide you through any issues that may arise.
Gamer Storm is going to be releasing these GF120 fans, and there will also be 140mm versions available for purchase, but they are making their debut with this Maelstrom 240, and the 120. However, these fans will not be on the 120X. These are four-pin PWM, and the blades of these fans are completely removable for easy cleaning and maintenance.
