The Intel bits of the SecuFirm2 is the same as we would expect. There is the LGA115x back plate in the middle with the spacer's brackets and nuts on both sides of it, leaving us with the LGA2011 socket screws at the bottom.

The AMD gear is all present and accounted for as well. There are the pair of brackets in the middle that rest atop the white spaces on either side of them. It is then the screws at the bottom go through the holes and secures this to the motherboard via the stock AMD backplate.

The rest of the bits that come in the hardware box is what we see now. There is the 90 degree screwdriver to mount the cooler, a pair of extra fan mounting clips, some NT-H1, a Low Noise Adapter, and the shiny metal case badge.

No matter which of the three manuals you need to use, you will find the same level of detail given to each socket type. Each will show you the hardware needed to get started, and through a few steps of illustrations and text descriptions, it takes only a matter of minutes to get the NH-D15S installed onto any motherboard.
