If you’ve read our, or other online publications reviews of Noctua, you’ll be familiar with their branding and presentation of their CPU coolers. It’s probably Noctua’s main bone of contention, branding! The performance usually speaks for itself, it’s just not always to the visual taste of system builders.

Again, as a quick plug, Chromax should resolve this question of taste, review soon!

Noctua include all the tools, thermal paste and fittings for supported AMD and Intel CPU sockets. There are also some extra rubber isolation mounts for a second fan, including some spring mounts too.
