Accessories and Documentation




The hardware box we found on top of the cooler has quite a bit inside of it. Here we find the universal back plate off to the left, and to the right is a packet of paste, four white nylon spacers, four black rubber retaining washers, and a LGA775 preload spacer, which is also made of black rubber.




Across the top are the four screws included to screw into the LGA2011 and LGA2011 V3 sockets. In the middle, we find four nuts to lock the cooler brackets to the motherboard hardware, as well as the set of four studs that pass through the back plate for anything that isn't LGA2011. That leaves us with the pair of screws for the cross bar, and the wrench that fits all the hardware that needs tightened above the board.




The top plate on the left is also universal. It has three holes at each corner for Intel mounting, but if you look around the edges, there are notches that also allow this plate to secure to AMD motherboards. Off to the right is the cross bar that secures the cooler to this top plate with the use of the two threaded holes.




The rest of the gear included in the box is shown here. There is a low-voltage adapter to keep the fan at 7V, if that is your desire. There is also a manual that walks you through every step, and is very easy to follow. We like that there are also four wire fan clips provided, in case you want to add a second fan.




Along with the stunning top plate on this cooler, a regular fan just wouldn't do, so Reeven chose this bright yellow bladed fan to add a huge splash of color, and there are also a few cases and motherboards out there that this would seamlessly blend into.
