Noctua to give free upgrades to support LGA 1151 CPUs

 

Noctua to give free CPU mounting upgrades to support Intel's upcoming LGA 1151 Skylake CPUs. All of Noctua's current generation CPUs already support LGA 1151, but Noctua will ship users a free upgrade for coolers up to 10 years old.

Intel's LGA 1151 Socket will have the same mount-hole spacing as some of Intel's previous sockets, including LGA1150, LGA1155 and LGA 1156. This means that the majority of Noctua's modern coolers will support this socket already, but older users of the LGA775 or LGA1366 CPUs will have a great opportunity to upgrade to Intel Skylake and keep their current Noctua coolers.

Users of older Noctua CPU coolers can write to Noctua requesting a LGA 1151 adapter, which will be shipped to them free of charge provided that they give Noctua some simple purchasing details.

It is great to see a company like Noctua stand by their long term users like this, as it is not hard to see most other companies simply request that their users upgrade to their more modern coolers if they are moving to Intel's new Skylake platform.
