No you can't.

You could however be able to do it if you can find out a suitable mounting bracket for it.

You have to get the holes to line up. I doubt that cooler came with a mounting kit for an Intel socket. You might have to look around. If you are handy, you might be able to make something yourself.

Though I'd just budget for a good air cooler. There will probably be many aircoolers that will do better than that...many that will do worse too.

Not sure how handy you are but it certainly doesn't seem impossible to create you own bracket for that cooler. Easiest would be something that goes over the AMD bracket instead of replacing it.

However, isn't that just some rebranded Asetek (or one of the other AIO companies) units? You can probably find a spare Intel bracket for an identical pump.

Both options would be cheaper than a new cooler but require more work. thumb.gif

EDIT: quick google thaught me that it's basically the same unit as the Antec H2O 920 . So if you can get an Intel bracket for that unit, it will probably fit yours.
No idea where to get it though. Will require some mailing and nagging biggrin.gif

Just the bracket. No idea where to source it. I think you should mail Antec or some shops about it.

Or make your own. But I would make one that uses the AMD bracket as support, not a replacement unless you have a laser cutter nearby. That would be fairly easy to make and secure.

Yeah if you can find out who made it you should be able to find parts to make it work from them. I've never looked into it. I am quite sure that AMD didn't have these specially made. They have to be rebranded.

However, you might be able to just put an "X" of two flat metal brackets on top of it and bolt it down.
