Noctua Offers Free Upgrade for LGA2011 Socket

Noctua has announced plans to offer the NM-I2011 mounting kit for the new Intel LGA2011 socket. This mounting bracket will fit all Noctua CPU coolers that have been released since 2005, and will be available by providing proof of purchase on the Noctua website. Noctua has done this this for several recent socket upgrades for Intel and AMD, and this will allow people to save some money on upgrades by keeping their current Noctua heatsink. I'm sure the current heatsinks will be able to handle the new socket, as I know my Noctua heatsink does a great job keeping my current CPU cool. An official statement on this was released by the CEO of Noctua, Mag. Roland Mossig, "We feel that product quality and service quality should always go hand in hand, so we're determined to give the best possible support to our customers. Having provided free mounting upgrades for the last generations of Intel and AMD platforms, we're happy to announce that we will continue this tradition with the NM-I2011 kit for LGA2011."
