Trusted SecuFirm2 Quality
Over the years, SecuFirm2 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.
Perfect Contact Pressure
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!
Integrated Fastening Brackets
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!
Tailor made for LGA115x
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.
One-piece backplate with fixed struts
The NM-i115x kit features a new, sturdy one-piece backplate with fixed struts that has been specifically designed to facilitate installation on LGA115x sockets. Due to the fixed struts, it™s now even easier to align the backplate and to attach it to your mainboard.
The NM-i115x SecuFirm2 kit is fully backwards compatible with most Noctua coolers since 2005*, making them safe long-term investments that can be used for several CPU generations.
