Accessories and Documentation
On the left is the AMD head unit mounting bracket, and it appears that the C-clip style brackets slide on and off the head unit with no screws needed to retain them. The composite backplate is in the middle, and it is universally used for all of the AMD sockets, and all Intel sockets outside of LGA20xx. That leaves us with the USB controller cable at the right, which is the only way you can make changes to the lighting, while also using the CAM software.
The parts in the bag to the left contain the LGA2011 hardware, with the set of studs and washers. To the right we have the standoffs and screws for them on the left, the long fan screws, spacers, and spring loaded nuts are in the middle, and we also got eight washers and a set of short fan screws.
The Aer P120 fan comes with a black frame surrounding seven widely spaced blades. The 4-pin fan connector is how it is powered, and we do like that the cable is sleeved. As for color in this area, this sticker is the only color, as the fan is not RGB capable, or illuminated in any fashion.
The manual for the M22 is thorough and will get you through to completion of the installation. No matter the socket type, the instructions take you step-by-step, for all variations, and along with the parts list for reference, you should be able to go from opening the box to having the cooler installed in as little time as possible.
