Noctua has today confirmed that they will be providing free AM4 mounting kits for their existing CPU coolers, offering a free upgrade option for CPU coolers which can date back to 2005. 

These new upgrade kits are compatible with Noctua's SecuFirm2 mounting system, which are compatible with the majority of Noctua's recent CPU cooling lineup. All users will need to do is provide Noctua with proof of purchase for a compatible CPU cooler and an AM4 CPU or motherboard, proving that you own a Noctua product and plan to use it on an AM4-based system. 
 

Below is a quote from Roland Mossig, Noctua's CEO. 

 

    We were the first heatsink manufacturer to provide its customers with free mounting upgrades in 2006 when AMD introduced the AM2 socket and we’ve continued this policy with several generations of Intel sockets. Now we’re glad to offer free mounting upgrades for the new AM4 platform,

It makes us proud that so many customers who bought their Noctua cooler five or even ten years ago, and used it on several platform generations, are still so satisfied with it that they want to keep running it on the latest CPUs. Keep enjoying your Noctua coolers on AM4!

In order to obtain the kits free of charge via Noctua’s website, users are required to upload a proof of purchase (electronic version, scan or photo of the invoice) of an AM4 motherboard or AM4 CPU as well as an eligible Noctua retail CPU cooler (server and workstation coolers of the DX and DO line are excluded from the free offer). Users who have lost the invoice for their Noctua cooler may write their full name and the current date on a piece of paper, take a photo of the paper next to their cooler and upload it as proof of purchase. Depending on the user’s location, shipping will usually take 1–4 weeks.

 

Noctua will be offering two different versions of their SecuFirm2 AM4 upgrade kits,  the NM-AM4-UxS kit for NH-U14S, NH-U12S and NH-U9S, and the NM-AM4 kit that supports most other retail cooler models manufactured since 2005 (full list can be found here). 

In addition to these two kits, Noctua also aims to offer an upgrade kit for the NH-L9a later this year.

Those who do not have proof of purchase for their CPU cooler will be able to purchase upgrade kits from select retailers for €7.90 in the EU and $7.90 in the US.

Dating back to 2005

Wow, wouldn't expect them to date back that far, absolute respect to them for doing it though. I hope Corsair announce something similar regarding their AIO coolers soon.Quote

That did come to mind, unless you're lucky enough to have it stored in the cooler's box or something, but most would have thrown it straight awayQuote

And this is why they are the best company ever to exist in the world of computers.

Amazing generosity. Any other company would deliberately not make the bracket to force you into buying a new cooler.

Then they ask for a photo dude

A few years back I needed a bracket for a 92mm Noctua I bought for my core 2 duo. They asked for an invoice but it was bought five years before on Ebay so I just sent a photo of the cooler.Quote
