Noctua Fan Mount Features
Over the years, SecuFirm™ has become synonymous with impeccable long-term stability and flawless craftsmanship. Enthusiast users and industry clients alike trust the time-tested quality of Noctua’s professional mounting systems.
SecuFirm2™ mounting systems use high-grade coil springs to achieve perfect contact pressure. No guesswork regarding how far to tighten the mounting screws, no risk of damaging the socket with excessive pressure!
Noctuas SecuFirm2™ systems feature fully integrated fastening brackets with pre-fixed pressure screws and springs, which greatly facilitates the installation process. No fiddling with loose screws and springs!
In order to cut costs, many manufacturers use cross-platform parts for both Intel and AMD, which can cause compatibility issues. Noctua’s NM-i115x kit has been tailor-made for LGA115x and strictly complies to the Intel keep-out zones in order to ensure 100% compatibility.
SecuFirm2™ is fully backwards compatible with all Noctua coolers since 2005, making them safe long-term investments that can be used for several CPU generations.
