While the head unit ships with the universal Intel mounting brackets, Corsair not only takes care of the AMD users with the single point of mounting brackets, they also include a set for TR sockets, and all of them push into a groove in the head unit. In the middle is the Intel backplate for 115x and 1366 sockets, while AMD mounting uses the stock backplate.

The four thumbscrews work with all Intel mounting as well as the TR systems, in conjunction with one of the three sets of standoffs. To the right of the nuts are the LGA20xx standoffs, while the ones below are for LGA115x and LGA1366, leaving the last set for AMD TR CPUs. The two screws next in line are for AMD sockets AM2 through AM4 including FM sockets. The last bits we have in this image are the sixteen long fan screws, eight short case screws, and eight washers to get the fans and radiator mounted.

To allow iCUE to "talk" to the H115i RGB Platinum, this cable must be connected. The angled end attaches to the side of the head unit, while the USB 2.0 connection needs connecting to the motherboard.

The pair of ML 140 fans are slightly different than ones we have seen in the past. This time, with the black frame and rubber corner pads, the seven blades are white to allow the RGB LEDs in the hub to make the blades glow. Both fans have a 4-pin power lead, but also have a thinner 4-pin connection, which is to control the RGB LEDs.

The literature includes a well thought out guide to ensure everything is mounted and connected correctly so that the H115i RGB Platinum works as intended. The warranty guide covers what Corsair feels are things to fix for five years. Things are slightly different for the Australian audience, as there is a second warranty guide specific to them.
