Austrian cooling firm Noctua presented LGA1366 mounting kits at Computex. These kits will not only be available for the current products but also for old coolers that date back to 2005. The new mounting kit will be available for a small fee, or perhaps even for free, and will be easier to use too:
Noctua hasn’t yet decided, but the mounting kits might be offered from anything from free to a small, few-euro service charge to current customers who want it. We certainly can’t fault the company’s excellent service here – especially since it now means upgrading will cost you next to nothing rather than a whole new cooler.
There’s also a new silent fan to come too: the NF-51B features the same high quality the company has become known for, but now incorporates the clipped edges of the new performance fan too. The NF-51B should be available around the October to November time-frame.
