Accessories and Documentation
With the Intel gear already on the head unit, if you are an AMD user, you will need to remove the locking ring and Intel top bracket, and replace it with the top ring at the top of this image. It comes with specific standoffs just for AMD use. To the right, we have the Intel backplate with adjustable ends to fit all of the sockets. For AMD users, you will need to use the stock plate.
On both sides, and screwed to a couple of standoffs, we have the nuts that lock the head unit to the motherboard on final installation. In the middle, we have the LGA2011 standoffs, and to the right are the other Intel standoffs that work for various other sockets.
To make sure you won't need any extra hardware, even when planning to use two more fans for a push/pull setup, NZXT supplies enough hardware to see you through. There are sixteen long fan screws, and just as many flat washers to go with them. They also supply us with eight shorter screws that will allow the radiator to mount directly to a chassis.
We were also shipped this pair of FX V2 140mm PWM fans, both of which are powered via a four-pin connection at the end of a braided cable. White blades in a black frame seems to be what everyone likes these days, and with built-in isolation at the corners, there should not be any noticeable vibrations.
As for the paperwork that comes with the Kraken X61, this is it. There is only one sheet that unfolds and shows the basic steps to installation, and once that is done, it states you need to download the CAM software to obtain full control of this AIO. The reverse has some information on parts, basic troubleshooting, and terms of the warranty.
