Noctua Announces Free Upgrade for LGA2011

Noctua today announced its new NM-I2011 mounting kit for LGA2011. Continuing Noctua's tradition of supplying its customers with SecuFirm2 mountings free of charge, the NM-I2011 kit allows Noctua users to upgrade to Intel's upcoming LGA2011 socket for Core i7-3000 (Sandy Bridge-E) processors. The new mounting is backwards compatible with all Noctua retail coolers since 2005 and will be supplied to Noctua users free of charge after uploading a proof of purchase on the company's website.

"We feel that product quality and service quality should always go hand in hand, so we're determined to give the best possible support to our customers. Having provided free mounting upgrades for the last generations of Intel and AMD platforms, we're happy to announce that we will continue this tradition with the NM-I2011 kit for LGA2011", says Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "We always like to think of our coolers as safe long-term investments, and even if you bought one of our first models six years ago, you'll still be able to upgrade it to the latest socket technology free of charge."

The NM-I2011 set is backwards compatible with all Noctua retail coolers since 2005 and has been designed to combine outstanding reliability, optimal contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation. Bringing the trusted SecuFirm2 quality to Intel's new LGA2011 platform, NM-I2011 is an enthusiast-grade mounting that meets the highest demands in safety, performance and ease-of-use.

The new NM-I2011 kit can be ordered free of charge via Noctua's website. A proof of purchase (photo, scan or screenshot of the invoice) of both a Noctua CPU cooler and either a socket LGA2011 mainboard or socket LGA2011 CPU are required. The new mounting kit will also be available in stores at a low service charge.

Availability
The NM-I2011 kit can already be ordered on Noctua's website. Orders will ship by end of October.

They charge like 90 bucks for a cooler, this is the least they could do.

90 bucks for a cooler that compete's with low end water cooling solutions

H60-50 and below.

Secondly, there quality.

Thirdly, That 90 dollar cooler will last 6+ years.

Its the most they can do, and more. Nobody Follow's the trend that noctua has put up, so show some respect.

I do love my noctua cooler that I've got. I'll have to track down my PoP and send it into noctua as I'm heavily contemplating a 2011 build! :)

I LOVE my Noctua coolers too :D

I'll choose ugly + excellent quality and performance over crap quality or performance + not ugly any day :D

this is good news, if I do find a way to upgrade to a i7 3820 + G1 Sniper 2, I could reuse my NH-U12P :toast:

Possibly. :D


Had to post pics..the package is very impressive. Even the little note inside is hand-signed. There must be at least several hundred of these packages going out to other users, and for the CEO of a company to hand-sign a note inside every one is stunning.

Noctua deserves some recognition for offering this to nearly ever user that owns one of their products. It's not like they stuffed the parts into a platic baggie, and tossed it in the mail...they put serious thought and design into the packaging and presentation that I've never seen before for situations like this. I've paid for "upgrade" brackets that came in a far less impressive package.


And hence the pics...as always, until you see what Noctua does for their customers first-hand, it might be hard to recognize just how bloody fantastic they are as a company. I cannot hype them up enough.

Does anyone know if Noctua sends these upgrade kits for free within EU or you have to pay delivery costs if you are from outside Austria?

I am most definitely outside of Austria, and I did not pay any shipping. I do not think ANYONE has to pay for shipping..Noctua is covering it all, it seems, as there is no place to enter payment information in the order form.
