Accessories and Documentation
For those with an Intel motherboard, you will need the hardware we have spread out in this image. On the left are knurled nuts to lock the top brackets to the backplate, along with the spacers used under said brackets. The backplate has nylon washers to isolate it from the motherboard, and to the right, we see the LGA20xx standoffs.
AMD installations will need the hardware seen here. Four screws go through the optional top brackets, through one of the sets of spacers dependent on socket type, and screw into the factory backplate on the motherboard.
Also found in the hardware box is the long #2 Phillips screwdriver to help with mounting. There is also a decent sized tube of NT-H1 thermal paste, enough for many application attempts, the NA-RC7 low-noise fan adapter, and a metal case badge sporting the Noctua name and logo.
Noctua ensures there is no confusion when it comes to mounting by delivering three manuals, one for each socket type. Whether using LGA115x, an LGA20xx, or AMD motherboards, pick the appropriate manual, and follow the directions closely. All of the information you need to mount the NH-L12S properly is in here, just take your time and follow each step and you will be golden.
