Hi. I have a i3-540 and I'm planning on overclocking and setting up watercooling.

The OCZ HF-MK1's $20 and since all my watercooling parts are cheap budget parts, there's probably no point in getting a more expensive CPU block. This block is compatible with LGA 775 and I recall some threads saying that LGA 775 waterblocks can be used with LGA 1156.

Is that true? Should I get that block? If not, I need a cheap CPU block under $45 for LGA 1156.

Thank you
