Noctua is continuing its tradition of providing free mounting kit upgrades, allowing PC owners to use their coolers for newer platforms (assuming they are suitable for the newer CPUs’ TDP). Owners of the NM-i17xx-MP78 or MP83, including Chromax versions, can submit proofs of purchase to receive new kits for the LGA1700 Alder Lake-S socket. Noctua is working on other kits as well, but due to compatibility restrictions, it is unable to offer kits for the NH-L9i. An updated model is expected to be available in October.

“We have offered free-of-charge mounting upgrade kits to our customers ever since AMD introduced AM2 in 2006, and we’re proudly continuing this tradition with Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake-S processors and the LGA1700 socket”, says Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “Customers will be able to upgrade most Noctua CPU coolers since 2005 at no additional cost, so even 15-year-old coolers can be used on the latest processors!”

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
