|· Mounting Kit for LGA-1700 Socket|
With the Intel LGA-1700 socket, new times are dawning for Intel desktop CPUs and CPU coolers. be quiet! coolers become compatible.
At CES 2021, Intel announced their new socket LGA-1700. The matching CPUs, which are expected to be available in 2021, will follow a new hybrid architecture and should be more powerful than previous generations through the use of high-performance and efficiency cores. This time, the new architecture also has a direct effect on the appearance, as it features an additional 500 contacts compared to its predecessor (which is why the number in the name has increased from 1200 to 1700), and as a result, the socket had to be greatly enlarged.
Thus, the heatspreader has a much larger surface than before, and above all no longer square, but rectangular. While this heralds a new era for Intel CPUs that promises even more performance, unfortunately no CPU coolers already available on the market are compatible with this change.
To remedy this, be quiet! will release mounting kits for for the new Intel CPU generation, with which many of the current coolers become compatible with the socket LGA-1700. In addition to a new backplate and the associated mounting bridges for the socket, these kits also include all other components required for installation on the Intel socket.It will be available in two colors: black and silver. A new mounting frame for the Silent Loop 2 AiO is also available.
