The LGA 1700 CPU socket, which is used for Intel Alder Lake processors, has a different configuration than the LGA 1200 and LGA 115X sockets. This means you normally need an LGA 1700 retention bracket or a cooler with LGA 1700 support out-of-the-box to mount a cooler onto an LGA 1700 CPU socket.
If you have an LGA 1200 or LGA 115X retention bracket, you can use our LGA 1700 Retrofit Kit to use your bracket to mount your Elite Capellix cooler with the Intel Alder Lake processor.

Please note that this kit does NOT include any retention brackets necessary for LGA 1200 / 115X / 1700 installation, so make sure that you already have a retention bracket. If you need a retention bracket, you can purchase the entire ELITE Series Retention Kit from our Webstore, which includes LGA 1700.
How do I use the Retrofit Kit?
The LGA 1700 Retrofit Kit comes with four standoffs to help you mount your cooler with the Intel Alder Lake processor.
