Accessories and Documentation
Inside of the white box of hardware, we first grabbed the major components for mounting the GKC3 to an Intel motherboard. On the left are the pair of top braces, to which the cross-bar on the right is mounted. To add rigidity, there is a thick steel backplate with rubber pads to isolate it from the motherboard.
In the back, we see the standard Intel standoffs which secure the backplate and have the brackets screwed into them with the four screws to the right. The shorter standoffs go into the socket bracket of LGA2011 motherboards and server the same purpose. In the front row, we see the wrench to use with the two mounting screws to the right of it, with the hex-heads on top of them.
We also found things like the LGA775 preload spacer, the packet of thermal paste, and a set of white washers to use with the standard Intel standoffs, to protect the top of the motherboard. Scythe also ships a #2 Phillips screwdriver. It is long enough to use on all of the hardware, even when it comes to mounting the cooler to the rest of the hardware, although it is stubby in the handle department, so it can fit in the box.
Scythe also sent along the AM4 mounting hardware. It is unclear if these are given away to those who can show proof of purchase to Scythe and get these handed out, but we do know they are for sale. We see a set of four screws, some plastic standoffs, and chromed top braces. To mount the cooler to this, you will use the black cross-bar that comes in the box.
The guide starts with precautionary statements and moves right into a list of all the parts and pieces you should have with the purchase. There is a reminder to remove the protective film, an indication of air flow directionality, and then offers step-by-step instructions of how the hardware can be used with various socket types.
