Noctua ships free HSF upgrade kits for Haswell-E

Posted on Wednesday, August 13 2014 @ 12:31:58 CEST by


Austrian cooling firm Noctua announced owners of its older HSFs can get a free mounting upgrade for Intel's upcoming Haswell-E platform
Noctua today announced that it will continue its tradition of supplying customers with its premium-class SecuFirm2™ mounting kits for novel platforms free of charge. While newer Noctua heatsinks support Haswell-E's LGA2011-3 socket out of the box, older models can be upgraded with the NM-I2011 kit at no additional cost.

"We're determined to provide the best possible support to our customers and over the years, we've sent many thousands of mounting kits free of charge to users who wanted to upgrade to new platforms", says Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). "With Haswell-E just around the corner, we're pleased to announce that we'll extend this offer for LGA2011-3. Owners of older Noctua retail heatsinks that don't support LGA2011 out of the box will be able to upgrade to the new socket free of charge!"

Due to the heatsink mounting mechanism being identical on LGA2011-0 and 2011-3, Noctua's previous SecuFirm2™ mounting systems for LGA2011 also support Intel's upcoming 'Haswell-E' X99 platform. The following Noctua coolers already include SecuFirm2™ mounting systems for LGA2011 and can be used on LGA2011-3 mainboards without any upgrades or modifications: NH-D15, NH-D14 SE2011, NH-U14S, NH-U12S.

Users of older Noctua retail models that don't include a SecuFirm2™ mounting system for LGA2011 can obtain the NM-I2011 kit free of charge on Noctua's website in order to make their heatsinks compatible with the new socket. The NM-I2011 kit is compatible with most Noctua retail coolers since 2005.

The NH-L12 features a special variant of the SecuFirm2™ that needs to be updated with the new NM-IPS2 spacers in order to be compatible with LGA2011-3. NH-L12 owners can now request these spacers free of charge at www.noctua.at.

To order the NM-IPS2 spacers (NH-L12 only) or NM-I2011 kit (all other models that do not support LGA2011 out of the box), a proof of purchase (photo, scan or screenshot of the invoice) of both an eligible Noctua CPU cooler and either an LGA2011-3 mainboard or LGA2011-3 CPU are required. The NM-LGA2011 is also available in stores at a low service charge.
