Accessories and Documentation




In this image, to either side, we have Intel top brackets on either side of the Intel back plate. be quiet! supplies a wrench for some of the hardware, and at the bottom, we have a solid bar that slides across the base of the cooler and locks it to the top brackets.





The rest of the hardware offers two fan clips, four O-rings to lock the four standoffs into the back plate. There are LGA2011 standoffs, and then a set of standoffs for other Intel mounting. The pan head screws are used to mount the Intel top brackets to the standoffs. The hex head screws are used to lock the cross bar to the top brackets, or for AMD, locks the clips at the right to the crossbar, and locks onto the stock AMD retention ring. The plastic square at the bottom is for LGA775 for additional socket pressure.




The paperwork covers everything you need to know. On insert covers the cooler, what comes with it, and all of the company information. The second one is the instruction manual and covers AMD and Intel mounting of the Shadow Rock LP. Lastly, we are given a pamphlet that covers the terms of the warranty coverage.




One thing we noticed right away looking at the paperwork is that the wire fan clips are different. Even though the provided clips are not bent the same, they still do a fine job of locking the fan to the heat sink.




As we try to do all the time, we snapped an image of the fan sticker. Indeed, this is a Pure Wings 2 120mm fan with nine blades and the potential to spin at 1500 RPM.
