    FAQ



    How can I check whether my AMD mainboard has a standard AMD backplate thatís compatible with the SecuFirm2™ mounting system and how should I proceed with the installation?

    The SecuFirm2™ mounting system requires a standard AMD backplate (either plastic or metal) with screw threads as shown on the pictures below. These backplates are pre-installed on the rear side of most AMD mainboards (see first picture below) and fixed to the retention module with four screws (see second picture below). If your retention module is fixed with plastic bolts instead of metal screws, please contact support@noctua.at in order to obtain an appropriate backplate.

    In order to proceed with the installation of your Noctua cooler, please remove the four screws and the retention module but keep the backplate in place so that you can see the screw threads from the top side of the motherboard (see third picture below). You can then proceed with the installation of the SecuFirm2™ mounting kit as described in the manual (see fourth picture below).

Test verdict: "In terms of performance, at the stock 3.5GHz settings, the coolers held their own ground and performed in the middle of the pack and even kept up with most of the AIO units we tested before. In push pull settings both coolers even kept up with the Corsair H100i by 1 degree. This was rather impressive for such small coolers." (Kenny Ha, PureOverclock.com)
