    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: "A to hlavne pre vynikajúce ventilátory, ktoré v kooperácii s pasívom perfektne fungujú i pri nízkej hlučnosti. K výslednému efektu lepšiu alternatívu asi nenájdete." (Ľubomír Samák, ExtraHardware.cz)

Test verdict: "المشتت NH-U14S قدم أداءًا رائعًا غير متوقع وكان هذا بسبب اختلاف التصميم عن أخيه الأصغر NH-U12S أيضًا بسبب المروحة ذات القطر 14CM والتي يتحرك الهواء من خلالها بأسلوب أفضل من مروحة 12CM، أما عن الصوت فهو أهدأ ويشبه كثيرًا NH-D14 فينصح بهذا المشتت للوحات X79 ومعالجات LGA 2011 خاصة إن أردت كسر سرعتها، لذا أنصحك بتبديل مشتتك إن كان ذا صوت مرتفع وأداء أقل من المشتت NH-U14S" (Amir Abd EL Fattah, ENG PC)
