Accessories and Documentation
As part of the hardware, we find the backplate and the top brackets of the HPMS III system. The top brackets are universal for all Intel and AMD mounting situations. As for the backplate, it is currently set for LGA115X, but the rubber caps can be removed, and the studs adjusted for other socket compatibility.
At the top, we see four black plastic spacers, on one side of which has a rubber washer to protect the motherboard. On the left are the LGA 2011/2066 standoffs that are applied to the top of the socket, there is an LGA775 pre-load spacer in the middle, and four screws to secure the hardware on an AMD motherboard. At the bottom, the last of the parts, are the nuts used to secure the top brackets.
Along with the usual finds, there are quite a few accessories as well. We see the third set of fan clips for a 25mm thick fan, as well as a screwdriver designed to work with the Fuma 2. For those with only one CPU fan header, a Y-splitter is delivered to power both fans from a single header, and there is a tube of TIM, which is enough for a couple of application attempts.
While we did reasonably well explaining what fans are in use, we took this image for two reasons. The first is so that the SU1225FD12M-CHP and SU1215FD12M-CHP model numbers could be seen. Part numbers lead to the second point, and that is so those wanting a third fan with the cooler can match what is on the cooler.
We have partially unfolded the installation guide to show off what you will see when you get your hands-on this cooler. There is a full list of parts and sections showing which parts go with Intel and which get used for AMD. Beyond that, the images are what will get you through the installation, as the text is sparse. Even so, it took us all of about 3 minutes from all parts out of the box to having the cooler ready to run.
