    FAQ



    How can I check whether my AMD mainboard has a standard AMD backplate that’s 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).

Noctua
24.01.2015 - TechStation.it NH-U9S
Test verdict: "I Noctua NH-D9L ed NH-U9S sono sicuramente un grande acquisto per chiunque necessiti un dissipatore performante per sistemi compatti senza rinunciare a buone temperature e ad una estrema silenziosità. Quest'ultima in particolare è un assoluto punto di forza, anche al massimo della sua velocità, infatti, la ventola da 90 millimetri di questi due modelli è praticamente inudibile."

Test verdict: "In ultima analisi abbiamo i prezzi, al solito quando si parla di Noctua siamo su cifre non esattamente popolari che prevedono una richiesta finanziari per la NF-A8 ULN, LFX e PWM di 16,90€ che salgono a 18,90€ per le NF-A9; cifre decisamente elevate per delle 80/90mm che tuttavia hanno dalla loro motore di primissimo livello, ottime prestazioni e una cura maniacale che in ben pochi sono in grado di offrire."
