In this image, we find the universal Intel backplate in the top-left corner and the universal Intel top bracket to the right of it. At the bottom, we see the new AMD top bracket with two sets of holes, and we also have the plastic lock ring which locks the top brackets on to the head unit.

AMD users get a bag marked for them, with special standoffs in it, and for those using AM4 motherboards, there is a bag especially for you too. Across, below the bags, are the LGA 2011 and 2066 standoffs, standoffs for all other Intel sockets, a set of thumb screws to secure the top bracket, and a pair of pads with tape on both sides to stick the Intel backplate to the motherboard.

To mount the fans, we are given twelve Philips head screws, and to secure the radiator to the chassis, there is another set of short Phillips screws. Thermaltake also provides a set of washers, which can be used with either set of screws, when and if they are needed.

These are the trio of Riing Plus 12 LED RGB TT Premium Edition Fans, which we found in the box. The fans have black frames with an opaque ring around them, which is what is illuminated via RGB LEDs. There are nine curved blades on each hub, and we also see the corners of the frames are padded with gray rubber and is found on both sides of the fans.

To utilize the RGB feature of the fans, all of them and the 9-pin connections are to be plugged into the top or the bottom of this hub, and so is the lead coming from the head unit. On the left, there is a connection for the USB control wire which connects to the motherboard, and on the right, is where power for the hub is to be made.

Used with the hub are these two leads. The one at the back is a 4-pin Molex connection, which draws power from the PSU, and via the smaller 4-pin connection, powers the hub. The USB 2.0 cable to micro-USB connections is for control. This allows the hub and the software to communicate with the fans and head unit.

Lastly, you will need some instructional help to get this AIO set up and running. The manual to the left is the guide of how to install the cooler, while the one to the right explains the hub connectivity, as well as how to use the software and where to get it. The bit in the middle covers terms of the warranty, which we can only assume, carries the same three-year warranty the Water AIOs offer.
