Nowadays it is very important that a CPU cooler supports installation on multiple sockets, Noctua has them all - and the mounting kits for all of them are included in the package. This means that there will be no additional cost for you if you decide to upgrade sockets.


Box contents:
  • CPU Cooler Heatsink
  • 120 mm fan
  • Fan mounting clips
  • Several bags with mounting parts for all supported sockets
  • Instruction manual

The full color, multi-language manual has to be one of the best manuals I have ever seen.
