Along with the Kraken X41, you will find various bags of hardware inside of the box. This one happens to include the top mounting nuts to secure the head unit, as well as both standoff sets for Intel's LGA2011 to the left, and other Intel socket use the ones to the right.

In one of the other bags, you will find the universal Intel backplate shown on the left, along with the AMD top bracket for AMD users. In another bag, you will also find standoffs specific to an AMD stock backplate, and that bag is clearly labeled with an AMD sticker.

There is yet one other bag that you need to find, and it includes all of the screws and washers. There are eight long fan screws included, along with as many washers as needed to mount the one included fan, as well as a second fan you may opt to add later. The shorter screws are for mounting the radiator directly to the chassis, and that is why there are only four here.

The Kraken X41 also comes with a 140mm RF-FX142-NP PWM fan, which is wrapped in plastic. The white blades and black frame are something most users will like, and even the fan gets the braided treatment to hide the wire between the fan and the four-pin connection.

Even without a single word to help you along, NZXT does very well with their images. This shows the Intel installation from start to finish, and then addresses the fact that you also need to download the CAM software. For AMD users, skip the first two images, and be sure the stock backplate is there. The rest of the steps are similar enough to carry you through as well.
