As usual, we start by un-boxing the boxes. Everything has been wrapped, padded, and bundled together in the box before we arrived. Let's open the package now.
The NITRO+ coolers are built by Asetek (ODM). Once opened up you'll spot the liquid cooling unit consisting of the radiator, fan, tubing, pump/cooling block. Add to that a bit of thermal paste.
You'll spot a back-plate that supports a wide variety of CPU sockets; Intel LGA 1700 / 2011 / 1366 / 1156 / 1155 / 1150 / 1200 and AMD Socket AM3 / AM4 based processors can be used in combination with this cooler. Included are:
- Liquid CPU Cooler
- Mounting kit for all modern CPU sockets
- Two/Three Fans
- Radiator mounting screws
- Thermal compound (applied)
- Quick Start Guide
Summed up, once unboxed you'll spot the cooling unit consisting of the radiator assembly, fans, and brackets + back-plate that supports a very wide range of AMD and Intel processors. Alder Lake is supported BTW. At default an AMD mounting bracket is installed.
