Summary: The Noctua NM-I3 Mounting Kit can bring new life to your old and aging Noctua coolers and make them useful once again. The kit is simple to use, just follow the instructions and you'll be done in a mater of minutes really.
Summary: I ordered this product because I made a mistake when returning a motherboard for warranty replacement. I accidentally left the back plate on the old mobo. What I learned in this process is how great Noctua products are. They sell spare parts for their heatsinks, which is great.
Summary: This package allows the owner of a Noctua cooler which was previously purchased and used on an earlier system to re-use that fine performing cooler which is already owned, and get the same degree of performance on a newer board/cpu configuration.
Use Your Noctua LGA 775 Cooler With a LGA 1156 or 1157 CPU

Summary: I recently upgraded my motherboard and CPU, and while ordering the parts, I realized that I would either have to replace or adapt my "beloved" Noctua CPU cooler. Noctua makes the best fans and cooling products in the world IMHO, so I had great trepidation that I wouldn't be able to use it.
Summary: The adapter kit works perfect for adapting the Noctua cooler to my new Intel 1155 motherboard. Also, although it had nothing to do with this adapter kit, I also have had recent experience with Noctua's warranty service.
Summary: I bought this kit for my NH-U12P cooler when I upgraded to socket 1155. This setup is better than the original 775 hardware, and has some improvements. For starters, the spring and tension screws are now attached permanently.
Summary: If you own an existing Noctua cooler and are upgrading to a platform that requires this mount, you can get it free from Noctua's website. If you want it immediately, then get it here. It works exactly as intended.
