Corsair announces LGA1700 mounting tools for its liquid coolers. Unlikely several other manufacturers, Corsair will not offer this kit for free. The firm charges $2.99 (2.99EUR) but does offer free shipping.
ORSAIR® (NASDAQ: CRSR), a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced additional mounts for owners of its range of all-in-one liquid CPU coolers to support the new LGA 1700 CPU socket and Intel® Alder Lake processors.

The new CORSAIR Intel LGA 1700 Retrofit Kit supports a wide range of currently shipping and past all-in-one CPU coolers, including the full award-winning ELITE CAPELLIX range, RGB PRO XT range, H100x, and more. Customers can order the kit from CORSAIR for just $2.99/€2.99/£1.99 and receive free shipping anywhere in the United States or Europe. The standoffs easily adapt the existing 115x/1200 bracket to be fully compatible with the new LGA 1700 bracket, ensuring owners are ready-to-go for the next generation of CPU performance.

“We’re excited to offer these easy-to-use kits to help CORSAIR customers get ready for the new LGA 1700 socket,” said Aaron Neal, Director of DIY Product Marketing. “Given the sheer power and performance of Intel Alder Lake processors, CPU coolers are poised to play a critical role in PC builders’ new systems, and this kit makes that positioning possible.”

In addition to offering the LGA 1700 bracket separately, CORSAIR CPU coolers with LGA 1700 support out-of-the-box are currently in production and will be available later this year. All future new CORSAIR CPU cooler launches will also support LGA 1700 out-of-the-box. For those who may no longer have all the necessary mounting hardware from their original purchase, a complete mounting kit for all CPU brackets, including LGA 1700, is also available.
