Earlier today, DeepCool announced that they will be offering free mounting hardware upgrades for the upcoming upcoming Alder Lake socket, LGA1700.
To help with the transition DeepCool is releasing a mounting upgrade kit that will be compatible with the LGA1700 socket. The kits will feature a new backplate and associated mounting bridges for the socket and include all components required to perform the installation.
|Model||LGA1700 Mounting Bracket Kit|
|GAMMAXX 400/GTE/GT Series||GP-G-EM009-1700|
|CASTLE/GAMMAXX Liquid Coolers||GP-G-EM172-1700|
Much like Noctua has announced in the past, these upgrades will be completely free to owners of DeepCool coolers. With the only requirement being that you have “proof of purchase of either an LGA1700 processor or an LGA1700 motherboard to reserve”.
This is different compared to companies like Corsair, which announced that they will be selling the “LGA1700 Retrofit Kit” for $5 instead and the actual mounting kit for $15.
