Stock HSF,775 or 1366

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need to come up with a HSF for just a short period of time. I find in my spare parts a stock HSF that I could swear came with a socket 1366 cpu that I bought but the push-pin pattern fits perfectly with the holes on my EP45-UD3P motherboard. I ask,even if this HSF looks like a perfect fit if it really did come with a socket 1366 cpu purchase can I use it on my socket 775 motherboard? I certainly cannot see where the problem would come unless contact with the cpu is the issue. I hold this mystery HSF up against a part I know for sure came with a socket 775 cpu and I can see a good bit of difference in heat sink thickness. Perhaps the stock HSF's are interchangeable,something I was not aware of.Thanks

Well I have a great contact pattern (see pics) so this baby is getting installed.

EDIT: I guess I should not be suprised that I see 8C higher temp at idle over the Megahalems I pulled out but I need to fix the Megahalems mount.It will be good for a few days. I am sure if I had no contact temp would be through the roof.Strange that this HSF fits and works, I could swear it is for a 1366, but whatever.I like my stuff to run cool so this is an emercency option only.

EDIT:Fixed that mount as that stock Intel HSF messed with my temps too much. I suppose it would have got me through a couple of days though.

I think that the 1366 has a wider spread for the mounting holes, but even if you do get it to fit it is the contact and the ability to handle the heat generated by the cpu that are the most important aspects to consider.
