Noctua Free Upgrade for Intel LGA2011
Apparently if you got stuck with any of the lowly inferior mounting brakets for legacy hardware such as the LGA775 all the way through LGA1366, Noctua will upgrade your mounting brackets for LGA2011 for free.
Noctua announced customers of the company's CPU coolers can order a NM-I2011 kit free of charge. This mounting kit will make all Noctua coolers since 2005 compatible with Intel's upcoming LGA2011 socket. The NM-I2011 can be ordered on this page.Continuing Noctua's tradition of supplying its customers with SecuFirm2™ mountings free of charge, the NM-I2011 kit allows Noctua users to upgrade to Intel's upcoming LGA2011 socket for Core i7-3000 (Sandy Bridge-E) processors. The new mounting is backwards compatible with all Noctua retail coolers since 2005 and will be supplied to Noctua users free of charge after uploading a proof of purchase on the company's website.
"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", says Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "We always like to think of our coolers as safe long-term investments, and even if you bought one of our first models six years ago, you'll still be able to upgrade it to the latest socket technology free of charge."
The NM-I2011 set is backwards compatible with all Noctua retail coolers since 2005 and has been designed to combine outstanding reliability, optimal contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation. Bringing the trusted SecuFirm2™ quality to Intel's new LGA2011 platform, NM-I2011 is an enthusiast-grade mounting that meets the highest demands in safety, performance and ease-of-use.
The new NM-I2011 kit can be ordered free of charge via Noctua's website. A proof of purchase (photo, scan or screenshot of the invoice) of both a Noctua CPU cooler and either a socket LGA2011 mainboard or socket LGA2011 CPU are required. The new mounting kit will also be available in stores at a low service charge.
The NM-I2011 kit can already be ordered on Noctua's website. Orders will ship by end of October.
Quite nice of them if you ask me.
