Socket 478 cooler?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I am just wondering about what the best Socket 478 cooler is, is there a way you can change the mounting system to accept 775 coolers etc?

the best 478 compatible cooler out there, provided you can find it is the Scythe Orochi. It has 10 heatpipes and is friggin HUGE.

I dont believe there is a way to make a 478 mounting system compatible with 775 coolers. the cooler itself must support both in order for it to work

Tuniq Tower 120 It has mounting system for 478 and for 775
From 478 to 775 - the cooler has to support it - or you could experiment with a bolt-through kit for 775.

Looks like stuff like the Sythe Mugen fits:

Not sure how they are getting these universal fits, I mean I know there is an OEM retention system which I guess can be replaced to fit another one maybe?
