Accessories and Documentation




On the left is the universal mounting hardware, which can expand and be used for both AMD and Intel sockets. The backplate is also universal, and adjustable for Intel spacing, and also offers AMD tabs. On the right, we see the Intel stud locks, and a wider set to use with AMD processors. This is also where we have placed the small tube of MasterGel Pro, which has enough for two or three mounts.





The universal standoffs are located at the top-left corner, with the studs for the back plate below them. In the middle is a set of fan mounting screws for the optional fan and a set of LGA2011/2066 standoffs. That leaves us with the wrench at the bottom, extra rubber pads for the second fan, and a socket to drive the standoffs into position.




If you do not have an RGB capable motherboard, you will need the Molex to 2-pin power adapter, which powers the wired remote to the right. The other end of the remote has the 4-pin RGB connector and is why there is a 4-in RGB to 4-pin RGB adapter offered, which allows connection to the fan. Speaking of fans, Cooler Master also sends along another set of thick plastic fan clips, so all you need for a push/pull setup is the fan.




The fan used to cool the tower is what we see here. The fans have rubber pads on them, but due to use of the plastic clips, extra rubber pads are placed on the inside of them to eliminate vibrations. There are nine highly curved blades on the fan, which should perform well, and there are a pair of ribbon cables leaving the hub, which does tend to come out of the tabs, which is something to keep in mind if you hear a cable rubbing the blades.




In this image, to the left is the manual for the MA410P. The parts are described to explain what is used where, and then the manual continues with installation steps for Intel LGA115X, another for LGA2011/2066, and the third set of renderings for AMD installation. To the right is the information on the warranty, and it explains what Cooler Master will cover if you happen to run into a defect.
