Noctua offers free AM4 bracket for L9a and L9i owners

Grab it fast, mates. I heard they're pretty swamped with requests that some emails went unanswered. Somebody at Reddit said that they got this message in return:

"Please note that due to the high demand, it may take us around 7-10 days to get your kit shipped."

I'm a bit confused.. if I recall correctly, L9a is built for AMD, and L9i is built for Intel.

So now both versions can use the same AM4 mounting kit? Or they each have different AM4 mounting kits?

Marketing pic shows what the linked press release states numerous times...



The SINGLE kit allows BOTH the NH-L9a & NH-L9i coolers to mount up on the AM4 socket...

I take it both coolers happen to be compatible with the keepout zone for AM4.

Which is amazing news IMO. Used L9i is much more widely available than L9a and usually for pretty cheap too.
