Noctua offer free upgrade kit
NM-I3 SecuFirm2 from NoctuaThe Austrian computer cooling manufacturer Noctua are first on the scene again with free mounting kits to allow their users to keep their existing heatsinks and use them with the new sockets from Intel.
The NM-I3 SecuFirm2 Mounting-Kit makes all Noctua CPU coolers since 2005 compatible with Intel's LGA1156 & LGA1366 sockets for Core i5 and Core i7 processors. Designed to combine outstanding reliability, optimal contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation, SecuFirm2 is an enthusiast-grade mounting system that meets the highest demands in safety, performance and ease-of-use.
SecuFirm2 utilizes a backplate with screw-threads that simply installs on top of the stock LGA1366/LGA1156 backplate. Not having to remove the stock backplate significantly reduces overall installation time and eliminates the risk of damaging the CPU socket. Thanks to the screw threads, the backplate can't slip during the installation process.
Thanks to the use of separate mounting bars, uninstalling and reinstalling the cooler only takes two screws. Loosening two thumbscrews gives full access to the socket without the backplate falling off, making it a child's play to change CPUs even if the mainboard is installed inside a case.
Owners of Noctua CPU coolers can obtain the NM-I3 Mounting-Kit free of charge via this form. A proof of purchase (photo, scan or screenshot of the invoice) of both a Noctua CPU cooler and either a socket 1156/1366 mainboard or socket 1156/1366 CPU are required.
The kit is also available to purchase at the usual Noctua resellers. Noctua advise that If you need the kit urgently, then please consider ordering it via a local reseller.
