Noctua today announced the impending
availability of its new NM-I3 SecuFirm2™ mounting kit that adds support
for Intel's upcoming LGA1156 based Core i5 and Core i7 "Lynnfield" CPUs.
Compatible with all Noctua CPU coolers since 2005, the new SecuFirm2™
kit will be supplied to Noctua users free of charge after uploading a
proof of purchase on Noctua's website.
"Back in 2006 when AMD introduced the AM2 socket, we started providing
free mounting kits because we think that product and service quality
should always go hand in hand", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO.
"We've continued this tradition when Intel presented LGA1366 and we'll
stick to our policy for LGA1156 as well. We always like to think of our
coolers as safe long-term investments, and even if you bought one of our
first models four years ago, you'll still be able to upgrade it to the
latest socket technology free of charge."
Designed to combine outstanding reliability, optimal contact pressure
and easy, straightforward installation, Noctua's enthusiast-grade
SecuFirm2™ mounting systems meet the highest demands in safety,
performance and ease-of-use. The new NM-I3 kit supports the upcoming
LGA1156 based Core i5 and Core i7 (Lynnfield) CPUs as well as socket
LGA1366 and LGA775 processors, thus also serving as the successor of the
previous upgrade kit for LGA1366.
The new NM-I3 kit is backwards compatible with all Noctua CPU coolers
since 2005 and 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 1156 mainboard or socket 1156 CPU
are required. The new mounting kit will also be available in stores at a
low service charge.
