How tall is a 1155?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
probably sounds like a dumb question, but I ask cuz I'm looking for a cooler w/o knowing how thick/tall the MOBO and CPU are and clearance is tight. I have 154mm at the MOBO mounting boss's, any idea what the difference would be. Also, do MOBO's and CPU's thickness's vary? I'll be using a I7 3770 if it matters.

As long as the cooler says its socket 1155 compatible it should fit.

Most coolers support LGA 1155 since its a mainstream socket still in production but just verify it supports 1155 if you are going I7 3770 route? why not the "K" version if you are using a custom cooler?

The cooler will fit the CPU, thats not my question. I need to know how tall the socket is and how thick the board is. I have 154mm from the mobo mounting studs to the cover. The cooler I'm looking at is 140.5mm, not to mention the fan filter that measures 6mm thick. That means the board/socket cant measure more than 7.5mm. Yes, it'll be a K series, however I figured that info was irrelevant.

i think he wants to know if his 1155 cooler will fit in his case, which depends on case and cooler, alls 1155 boards and cpu's have the same thickness. you might want to google you cooler or case on images and see what other people have done with it \ see if it fits.

if the cooler says that it is compatible with 1155, then you can install it to any 1155 motherboards, as simple as that, no measurements needed.

what cooler are you talking about?

@ OP: can you just tell us what case it is? We could probably put together a nice list of coolers for you. Oh an don't forget to include a budget...those are always helpful too smile.gif

then the question should be, CAN THIS COOLER FITS IN THIS CASE?

Yay, at least you guys have reading comprehension smile.gif...

The case is a Lian-Li PC-C60
http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product/product06.php?pr_index=580&cl_index=1&sc_index=25&ss_index=62&g=f

Heres a pic that shows the 140mm lid vent thats directly above the CPU
http://picturepush.com/public/8721055

Lian-Li says 140mm is the max but I dont think a mobo/CPU measure 14mm thick. I wont know exactly until I get the board/socket. I'm just looking at coolers anyway, just to get an idea.

I've done a bit of searching, I found one thread a TH and a review on NE that suggested Noctua NH-C14
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608020&nm_mc=OTC-FroogleNEW&cm_mmc=OTC-FroogleNEW-_-CPU+Cooling-_-Noctua-_-35608020

However I think the Phanteks PH-TC14CS might be better both in performance and noise
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835709013

Absolutely, I'm open to other suggestions smile.gif. My budget is $100 USD

Thanks

You have a few more options, but both of those coolers that you mentioned will be better than any other conventional option available to you.

I would go with the phanteks cooler because it does outperform the noctua cooler.
