Accessories and Documentation
Inside of the box, there is hardware, but it is all based on Intel sockets at this time. In this image, we are offered a set of LGA2011 screws. You will need the e-clips and springs from the universal set already on the water block, but that is not that hard to accomplish.
We were also sent a small tube of EK Ectotherm TIM, a set of eight standard fan screws to mount the Predator into a chassis, and are also delivered an Allen wrench to remove the fill port caps.
The backplate we were sent fits only LGA115X sockets, and it sort of specific as to the way it is meant to be oriented, as holes are drilled only one way. Between the steel backplate and the motherboard, EK sends a rubberized membrane that sits between them to isolate it from the motherboard.
Also sent in the kit is this pair of leads. Both are roughly eleven inches in length, and the one at the left is a SATA power lead that powers the entire system. The lead to the right is to allow the system to use the CPU header on the motherboard for PWM control of the fans.
The user guide provided shows us everything we need to know. With well-drawn renderings and great explanations, this booklet explains it all like you are five years old, and leaves no stone unturned. It even shows what sort of options you have for quick disconnects, additional blocks, and where to add in the reservoir for best efficiency.
