    Noctua today announced the impending availability of its new NM-I3 SecuFirm2 mounting kit that adds support for Intel's upcoming LGA-1156 based Core i5 and Core i7 "Lynnfield" CPUs. Compatible with all Noctua CPU coolers since 2005, the new SecuFirm2 kit will be supplied to Noctua users free of charge after uploading a proof of purchase on Noctua's website.

    "Back in 2006 when AMD introduced the AM2 socket, we started providing free mounting kits because we think that product and service quality should always go hand in hand", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "We've continued this tradition when Intel presented LGA1366 and we'll stick to our policy for LGA-1156 as well. We always like to think of our coolers as safe long-term investments, and even if you bought one of our first models four years ago, you'll still be able to upgrade it to the latest socket technology free of charge."

    Designed to combine outstanding reliability, optimal contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation, Noctua's enthusiast-grade SecuFirm2 mounting systems meet the highest demands in safety, performance and ease-of-use. The new NM-I3 kit supports the upcoming LGA-1156 based Core i5 and Core i7 (Lynnfield) CPUs as well as socket LGA-1366 and LGA-775 processors, thus also serving as the successor of the previous upgrade kit for LGA-1366.

    The new NM-I3 kit is backwards compatible with all Noctua CPU coolers since 2005 and 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 1156 mainboard or socket 1156 CPU are required. The new mounting kit will also be available in stores at a low service charge.

    Given the price of their kit, it would be a bit of a :nutkick: to charge for little pieces of metal that probably cost Noctua maybe 50p.

    Good on them - it's absolutely good practice for them to do this - there is a lot of customer loyalty to be had in this market.
