Noctua offers free mounting upgrade to LGA1150

CPU cooler maker Noctua has announced it will offer owners of Noctua coolers a free mounting upgrade that will offer compatibility with Intel’s upcoming LGA1150 platform and Haswell chips.

“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 just around the corner, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll extend this offer for LGA1150. Owners of older Noctua retail heatsinks that don’t support LGA 115x out of the box will be able to upgrade to the new socket free of charge!”

The new upgrade kit is known as NM-i115x and belongs to the company’s SecuFirm2 line of mounting kits. Due to the spacing of the mounting holes being the same on LGA1155, LGA1156 and LGA1150 platforms this means that the SecuFirm2 mounting system is compatible with the upcoming LGA1150 platform. This means that the following cooling systems can be used on LGA1150 machines immediately and with no problems whatsoever – Noctua NH-C14, NH-D14, NH-C12P SE14, NH-L12, NH-L9i, NH-U12P SE2, NH-U9B SE2.

Owners of older Noctua coolers can get the NM-i115x kit, which offers compatibility with LGA1150 free of charge. To do so they will have to present a proof of purchase of an eligible Noctua cooler and an LGA115x CPU or motherboard. In case you can’t do so the Noctua NM-i115x kit will be available in stores for a low price.
