cooler question.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
iv purchased a NXZT Havik 140 dual fan and heat sink for my build i started late last year, now that im started back on the build and havent purchased my mobo or gpu, was wondering if the havik 140 will fit on a i7 haswell socket LGA 1150?

if not, then when are my best options on the most well rounded heat sink, looking to purchase mobo, gpu and an new heat sink by first of next week. Thanks.

Yes you can use an 1156 cooler on an 1150 socket motherboard

It depends on the motherboard and RAM. The RAM height is a bigger factor as well as the distance from the CPU socket to the RAM slot on your motherboard..

ahhh man thank you! i think NXZT or all other compaines should list all socket types that are able to fit certain items, makes things less of a hassle or stressful... because i really didnt or dont want to sell or get rid of this nice heat sink. But, thank you for the help. thumb.gifbiggrin.gif

You should return the RAM for Vengeance Low profile if it's not after return period...

return is way past due, but if need to be i can off it to a friend of mine, ill check out the low profile, i didnt even realize the RAM slot location or RAM itself would hinder my situation, but thanks for the help indeed.
