On the left is the universal Intel backplate for mounting. It has adjustable ends which allow the threads to slide between 115X and to 1366, even though one of them is not mentioned in the compatibility. To the right is the AMD mounting bracket for the head unit. It too has the slotted holes which allows it to be twist-locked onto the underside of the head unit.

The rest of the mounting hardware is seen here. At the top-left are the four thumbscrews securing the head unit to any of the Intel hardware. At the top-right, we see the LGA2011/2066 standoffs, while at the bottom-left are the standoffs for all other compatible Intel sockets. That leaves us with the AMD mounting screws that require the additional head unit bracket as well as the stock mounting brackets on the AMD motherboard.

When it comes time to install the fans, you will find that Corsair has provided the needed eight screws to get that done. There are sixteen washers, which are used on the fan screws, as well as on the shorter eight screws, which will mount the radiator to the chassis if the fans are on the opposite side.

One essential part that allows the iCUE software to "talk" to the H100i PRO RGB is this USB cable. The Micro-USB end connects to the left side of the head unit. You then route the wire behind the motherboard and connect the native 10-pin USB connector to the motherboard.

With black frames and rubber pads molded into the corners of them, these fans support the seven gray blades with magnets rather than traditional bearings. We spun one of the fans to get the part number, should you want another pair for push-pull, but all we can find is the number 31-005165.

As far as paperwork is concerned, there is quite a bit given. There is the quick start guide, which shows what you should have, how to make the connections, and where to get the software. Along with the standard warranty guide, there is also an insert for the Australian market, as to what they cover for the five years. We also see, what we can only guess, is a lead warning for specific markets.
