aside from it being a socket 775 mounting system in an 1155 is the only one.



but hey, if it screws in, is tight, doesnt move, and fits flush, then hell... your good to go.

Thanks for the help, looks like some of the 1155 MB's are designe dot support both, so looks like I should be ok.

I ended up having to put the stock fan on for now. The holes lined up on the MB ok, but rather than being push pins, it uses screws. Dell had a plastic panel under the old MB with the screw holes, and of course THAT didn't align. Sigh.

I already had the CPU up to 4Ghz while playing COD Black Ops and my case and CPU temps were around 55c, so I'm not overly concerned for now, though the stock fan is loud. I did remove the stock TIM and replace it with artic silver 5.
