What is this BS with needing a new HSF for a new socket type? That's just overdoing it with the proprietary nonsense).

But can anyone answer the actual question, please?
You do realize that the socket is physically larger than the LGA775, and logically wouldn't be able to fit in the same bolt pattern and get proper contact, right?

Not that we need to get into this now, but

This is still a pretty hot topic for conversation and I would disagree with the idea that the "majority" feel this way (though I couldn't tell you how the majority feel or if there is even really a "majority" at all). Unstable is unstable. The reason one tests for stability for numerous hours is to see if it will fail given that time. The reason we stop testing is because we want to be able to actually use our computers and thus anything over X hours is assumed to be the same as "forever." Since prime tests are slightly random if an instability arises after any number of hours it can happen again at any time.
Personally I would probably do what you did and just lower the OC as there was clearly an instability while running prime since that lone core failed.

As far as universal heatsinks go, that's a good question. I wonder if it has anything to do with the advancements that are made in the stock heatsink design. If everyone was using the same cooler, when new chips came in people could use the same old cooler despite the fact that more heat is often being produced. Since this may cause overheating even at stock this may be a liability for someone. Other possible reasons for a lack of cross company heatsinks may be somewhere in the fact that amd can probably get away with having less powerful coolers (stock probably being the most important) as their chips almost always run cooler. Again if the motherboard holes were the same, maybe someone would use the wrong company's heatsink and burn there chip up without overclocking/voiding any warranty.
Though I suppose we'll never know .

Or, you know, that.

Well, yeah, I do realize that now. At first I was thinking a couple mm's of distance wouldn't make any difference, but that's not true... in fact, that's all it takes is a couple mm's of difference when we're dealing with something meant to be applied using pressure.

At first I thought only the distance between the holes had changed, however what I also learned from doing my modification is that the socket seems to have a bit more height to it... so that does, actually, explain why the extra distance was necessary, in order to achieve the same level of pressure while maintaining proper contact.

I guess I was just annoyed, and refused to think further past my own dilemma for reason. Anyways, I do stand corrected.
