As i just learnt my old Dell cpu cooler does not fit into my new motherboard (Biostar IH61MF-Q5).
I was wondering, to avoid further mistakes how i can tell if CPU coolers will fit?

I know it needs to fit my case as well and have enough room for ram but the problem with the Dell cpu cooler is that there is nowhere to screw it in as the old motherboard had threaded holes for that.
Motherboard is a Biostar IH61MF-Q5
CPU- i7 3770
I was thinking of buying a Arctic Alpine 12
