775 stock coolers use those horrible pins though. His cooler has a completely different attachment system. Personally I think those stupid plastic pins did more for the aftermarket cooler industry than any other single thing.

From the looks of it, that's basically the same mounting system I'm using right now. I think the main difference is that you have to install a spacer on the back plate to use it on the 775 socket. When you say it fits snugly, do you mean it fits correctly, or that it feels like its too tight on the chip?

if the holes are the same you can probably do it. I think I'll go with an encouraging maybe.

also Rev B on the site states 1155 support

So probably the difference is the spacer I mentioned earlier for the 775. I guess if the 1155 is the same as the 1150 and the manufacturer claims that it will fit, then its supposed to fit. My concern is ending up in a situation where I've pulled it off to swap it over to the new chip, only to find it won't fit and now I've got to re-build my old computer just to order that adapter before tearing it all apart again...

LOL, those pins were just plain terrible...

well if your new cpu comes with a stock cooler, you can use that instead for a while. What are you doing with that q9550 btw? I have use for one of those.

Didn't even think of that... I'm sure it will have some sort of cooler, but those intel things are about 2 steps above useless for what I put my computer through. Still, I guess it would hold me over for a week or so until I could get the adapter. As for the q9550, I haven't even thought of that part yet...

LGA 1150, 1155 & 1156 all have same mounting specifications and use same mount.

From Megahelms installation instructions:
Quote:
Intel-Step 3For Intel LGA 775 users, have the dark side (the softer foam side) of the LGA775 backplate spacer facing down and place it in the center of the backplate as depicted in the illustration. For all other platforms such as Intel LGA 1366 and 1156, there’s no need for the usage of the LGA775 backplate spacer.
