Accessories and Documentation
There is an Intel backplate that is to be used with LGA115X and LGA1366 motherboards, and it has adjustable bits at the corners to work with both. On AMD motherboards, you will need to swap the ring to the one shown here, and using the stock backplate; you are to install the standoffs specific to AMD.
In this image, we have the LGA2011 and 2011-V3 standoffs and the LGA115X and LGA1366 standoffs in the front. Behind them are the knurled nuts which are used for all AMD and Intel installations, as they lock the head unit to the motherboard.
When it comes to mounting fans of mounting the radiator into the chassis, NZXT is sure to give you all you will ever need. There are sixteen long fan screws at the back, while in the front there are eight short screws to secure the radiator, and sixteen washers to use as well.
There are also two cables which need to be connected to the head unit. The simpler of the two is a cable which has a native USB 2.0 internal header on one end, and a Mini-USB connection at the other to allow for software control. The larger bundle is used to power the head unit via SATA power, it has a 3-pin fan connection for PWM signals from the motherboard, and can power four 4-pin fans.
Unlike what the specifications say, the Kraken X62 ships with a pair of fans. They are both RF-A140-FP fans, they are black, and both fans use seven blades to push air through the 22FPI density of the radiator.
We are also given a manual to guide us through the installation process. Via renderings and short text instructions, each step is shown, and all options are described, so there is no reason you will get stuck in any part of that process.
