In the world of coolers, a relatively recent player, Noctua, has rapidly succeeded in becoming the reference on the market. Its flagship models, the NH-U12P and NH-U9B, are used in a lot of configurations. The performance, noise levels and exemplary service provided by Noctua are some of the reasons for this.

Nevertheless, these products did have a recurrent fault: it was up till now impossible to mount these coolers at 90° on an AMD configuration. While Intel uses a square fixture that allows you to mount the cooler in any direction, the AMD mounting is rectangular and means you have less flixibility in terms of the alignment when mounting it.

Noctua is showing its commitment to this market once again by announcing the NM-A90 upgrade kit, which allows its products to be mounted at 90°, even on an AMD socket, and is offering to supply it free to all those who have bought its products.

If you have an NH-U12P or an NH-U9B, as well as an AM2/AM2+/AM3 socket, you can request the NM-A90 via this link.
