Moreover, the catch to obtain the kits free of charge via Noctua’s website, users are required to upload a proof of purchase (electronic version, scan or photo of the invoice) of an AMD AM4 motherboard or AMD AM4 CPU as well as an eligible Noctua retail CPU cooler (server and workstation coolers of the DX and DO line are excluded from the free offer). Users who have lost the invoice for their Noctua cooler may write their full name and the current date on a piece of paper, take a photo of the paper next to their cooler and upload it as proof of purchase. Depending on the user’s location, shipping will usually take 1 to ­4 weeks.

However, those who have lost their proof of purchase bill/invoice/checkout paper can still purchase the cooler from retailers or e-retailers like at retail price of EUR 7.90/USD 7.90. Retailed price option goes for those who need the kit upgrade urgently or have lost the proof of purchase of an AMD AM4 based CPU or motherboard.

Noctua, free, upgrade kit, AMD Ryzen

Noctua CEO Roland Mossig says that:

We were the first heatsink manufacturer to provide its customers with free mounting upgrades in 2006 when AMD introduced the AM2 socket and we’ve continued this policy with several generations of Intel sockets. Now we’re glad to offer free mounting upgrades for the new AM4 platform.

Moreover, the SecuFirm2 mounting system for AMD AM4 has been tailor-designed for the new socket so to ensure optimal compatibility, perfect contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation. Both the NM-AM4 and the NM-AM4-UxS kit include two different sets of mounting bars, which allows the users to choose the orientation of the cooler according to their preferences in order to ensure an optimal alignment with the airflow path inside the case.
