Got yourself a Noctua cooler? Want to upgrade your rig to a Ryzen CPU? Fear not, as you can get Noctua AM4 mounting kit for FREE! The renowned air coolers makers that look industrial, and offers top-notch air cooling performance are taking steps to ensure its compatibility with AMD Ryzen CPUs.

They will send it to you and it’ll arrive really quick – no worries about that. Personally received quite a lot of deliveries from Noctua themselves, and they’re always – always – arriving earlier than what’s expected.

However, there’s a catch. If you’re using either the Noctua NH-U14S, NH-U12S or NH-U9S, you’ll have to get the NM-AM4-UxS mounting kit. If you’re using the other coolers manufactured since 2005 and except the NH-L9i/NH-L9a series low-profile coolers, you’ll need the NH-AM4 mounting kit. There are other Noctua coolers that can be made compatible with the new AM4 chipset but are not eligible to get the mounting kit for free.
