    Noctua announces free upgrade for LGA2011


    Vienna, October 19th 2011 - Noctua today announced its new NM-I2011 mounting kit for LGA2011. 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.

    Availability
    The NM-I2011 kit can already be ordered on Noctua's website. Orders will ship by end of October.

Test verdict: "There’s no doubting that the Noctua NH-D15 is a very decent air cooler. Noctua improved the shortcomings of the old flagship cooler NH-D14 by expanding the dual tower design and offer a much better memory compatibility, which allows for more memory kits with high-profile heatspreader to sit under the heatsink. The build quality is excellent with the heatsink’s aluminium fins soldered nicely onto the heatpipes. The SecuFirm2 mounting kit makes cooler installation easier and more secured."

Test verdict: "Il est tout d’abord apparu que le NH-U14S est un ventirad très bien conçu et qui doit être produit selon des canons très stricts, c’est tout du moins l’impression qu’on a en considérant sa qualité de fabrication générale. Puis, la phase de montage s’est montrée aussi facile que dans le cas des autres ventirads Noctua (et pour cause) et relativement rapide. Quant aux performances en refroidissement, elles sont, comme toujours pour l’instant chez Noctua (après trois tests plus que concluants), elles sont au-dessus de la mêlée et le tout dans un silence plus que relatif, à la hauteur de la réputation que le constructeur s’est patiemment forgée au fil des années."
