Accessories and Documentation
The provided hardware that comes with the Kraken X31 is pretty specific at this point. At the top is a set of four nuts that will work with all of the hardware below it. However, along the bottom row, we find black AMD standoffs, a more natural looking set for LGA2011, and a red-brown set for all other Intel mounting.
We also have the plastic backplate intended for use with all of the Intel sockets, except for LGA2011, to the left, with its adjustable threaded bits at each corner. We also have the metal top bracket that locks into the head unit for AMD users. You will need to use the stock backplate for AMD installation.
If you wish to grab a second fan and add it to this AIO, there are enough long fan screws offered; the eight screws provided are visible on the left. The washers should be used against the chassis, and if you are installing the cooler as shipped, you will use the smaller set of four screws to attach the radiator to the chassis.
The RF-FX122-HP is a six blade fan that features a white hub and blades with a black frame. This fan is supplied in the box. The fan is powered via four-pin PWM connection at the end of black cabling, but we also see that there is no rubber isolation offered on this fan.
Again, we have pictures rather than any text to work your way through the installation process, at least for the Intel side of things. However, you can find a more detailed manual available online for this, and all of the other new Kraken coolers, and while you are there, grab the CAM software download as well.
