Noctua to Provide Free Mounting Upgrade Kits to Consumers
Noctua has long been providing its customers with SecuFirm2 mounting kits for novel platforms free of charge. The company has announced that it will continue this tradition, as consumers who own older Noctua heatsink models can upgrade their product with the NM-I2011 kit at no additional cost. The NM-12011 kit, which is compatible with most Noctua retail coolers since 2005, allows older Noctua heatsink models to support Haswell-E's LGA2011-3 socket. The Noctua CEO, Mag. Roland Mossig, noted that the company is pleased to extend its offer of providing its customers with NM-12011 kits free of charge, so that they can upgrade to the Intel Haswell-E platform.
In order to receive the NM-IPS2 spacers, which are only required for the NH-L12, or NM-I2011 kit, consumers must request the free mounting upgrade from Noctua and provide the company with a proof of purchase of both an eligible Noctua CPU cooler and either an LGA2011-3 mainboard or LGA2011-3 CPU.
