How would it hold up to cooling the CPU. Need to edit that last post better.

It'll be more than fine. It will keep up with the 120mm coolers like the Thermalright Macho 120 & Noctua NH-U12S and be a few degrees (like 3 to 4°C behind the top air coolers).

Ok cool I'm sure their is a place I can get the mounting kit for it. I just didn't know with it being almost 5 years old if it could keep up.

LGA1150, Lga1155, LGA1156 all use the same mount

Quote:
The first version of Megahalems was for LGA775 and LGA1366. For those who purchased the early version and would like to switch to LGA1156/1155/1150 system, you can keep your original Megahalems and get this Intel Socket 1156/1155/1150 Adapter Kit.
