Noctua SKT1366 Mounting KitsBackward compatible on all Noctua CPU coolers since 2005 
The flow of Core i7 compatible products is gaining momentum in the approach to the November release date. One of the expenses for adoptees of the new CPU's is going to be having to replace their CPU cooling solutions. However, Noctua have come up with a solution, called the SecuFirm2™ mounting kit, which will remove this expense for owners of their CPU coolers. Noctua have announced that they are going to be offering free mounting kits for the new Socket 1366 processors. The mounting kits will enable owners of current and previous CPU (from as far back as 2005) coolers to use them on the new CPU's and motherboards.
All that is required to obtain the new mounting kits is to provide a proof of purchase for the cooler along with proof of purchase for a socket 1366 mainboard or socket 1366 CPU. The proof of purchase will be accepted either as a scan, photo or screenshot of the original. The kits will become available as soon as the new CPU's hit the shelves. They will also be available to purchase at a low service charge from selected retailers.
You can view more information on the new mounting kits at the Noctua website. You can also discuss in our forums here.

Those are great looking fans. I have been wanting to replace the Xilence Red Wings on my radiator for ages and these might be what I go for. They would suit my rig quite well :)

That colour reminds me of Lego for some reason (their space sets sub brand).

Xigmatek claim less than 20dba for these (I know manufacturers lie :P), are they really that quiet in real life?

I had to rip out all the blue led fans from my 900 and stick in 5 of: THESE

Just like the led ones, except a teeny bit faster ;)

Although i am getting the LED ones when i downgrade to the 300..

The 300 has a 140mm mount in the roof :cool::p
