Corsair mounting kit for base LGA 1700 not free for existing customers

Together with the Intel “Alder Lake” Core 12000 series, a new base is released to house the physically larger processors. This means new requirements for mounting devices, something several manufacturers have flagged for providing at no extra cost. Now a new name is added to the line of manufacturers that makes it possible to use already purchased coolers – Corsair.

Among the compatible coolers today are current models in the series Elite Capellix, RGB Pro XT, classic Hydro H and a bunch of older models. To mount these on the new base LGA 1700, only four new spacers are required, something Corsair does not offer free of charge. This is in contrast to competitors such as Noctua and Be Quiet.


Elite Series Retention Kit

Anyone who wants compatibility can buy instead LGA1700 Retrofit Kit with the distances of 2.99 euros, corresponding to about 30 kronor, including shipping. What can be seen as a potential advantage is that Corsair does not require the presentation of proof of purchase, either for coolers and LGA 1700 processor or an Intel processor in the Core 12000 series.

For those who have not saved all the assembly details, Corsair also offers Elite Series Retention Kit, which in addition to the spacers comes with associated frames and screws. With this, the price goes up to 14.99 euros or around 150 kronor. Corsair also takes the opportunity to announce that all processor coolers by the end of the year will be delivered with compatible mounting kits directly out of the box.
