So I'm planning on getting a better cooler for my PC, which has an intel i7 4770K. This new processor runs the new LGA 1150 socket and after searching a bit, I didn't find any coolers I liked. I was looking to get the Swiftech H220, but that one is for LGA 1155. I read somewhere that these two sockets (1155 and 1150) have the same mounting points for the coolers. I just want to double check that. So does the LGA 1150 and the LGA 1155 have the same mounting points for the coolers?

The Corsair H100i is one of, if not the best all-in-one liquid cooler on the market!!
It supports cooling for LGA1156, 1155 and 1150!!
If the H100i costs too much, the H80i is also a brilliant cooler, and costs less :)

H100i = $109.99 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181032)
H80i = $87.99 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181031)

Yeah, but will other LGA 1155 coolers fit on my LGA 1150 mobo?
 
lga 1155 and lga 1150 share the same mounting holes, so yes, you can use the same cpu coolers that work with lga 1155 with the 1150 mohterboard.

as for coolers, generally the difference in performance isn't all that much from a solid mid ranged cpu cooler like the hyper evo 212 and a top end cpu cooler like the NH-D14, or H100i. However, since you're looking at a haswell cpu i suggest you get the best cpu cooler you can get your hands on, something in the class of the h100i or NH-D14 is probably needed if you're getting a k series haswell and are planning on doing some overclocking.



wrong. how about you actually use a h100i or h100 or corsair cooler in general on a haswell mb before you start to give bad advice like this. Having used them both for other's builds and my own i can assure you there is one mounting bracket for lga 1150 lga 1155 and lga 1156.

You are exactly right, you can't listen to just everybody on these boards or they will have you running in circles. LGA 1155, 1156, 1150 do indeed use the exact same bracket!
 
Sorry for the bump, but I was doing some Googling and I came across this thread. It seems that someone named Jimbob1 changed the OP's original choice of the best answer, so I'm re-selecting the one that was originally chosen. Sorry again for the disturbance :)

Hi there,

Just wanted to replace a noisy original Intel fan for my I5 2230, socket 1150 processor, and bought a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO.
On the printed packaging, amongst other, only socket 1155 was listed, socket 1150 was not. On the box a sticker was screaming at me, and the sales person of my local computer shop, that it would fit socket 1150 too.

Well, it does not. Original fan mounting poles are 75mm apart, TX3 EVO does something like 72mm or 80 mm.
Does.
Not.
Fit.

Cheers,
Rene
 


then you are the only person in history with this problem. the mounting holes are identical. the old LGA 775 mounting bracket was different... and amd mounting sizes are different, but the lga 1156/1155/1150 all are the same. are you sure you're using the mounting bracket right? Did you use the amd bracket by mistake?

Yup, I _do_ feel like an idiot, but I did use the 4 provided "push to lock" brackets , which you have to put onto the heatsink. I hear you, it _should_ fit, I did read the Intel docs, and 1150 and 1155 specs for mouting holes are identical.

For now, I've put back the Intel e97378, but it's noisy. After reading your response, I've dug up some videos on the internet, and I did use the right brackets. I'm stumped...
 


return the cooler. maybe it shipped with the wrong hardware... or was opened at some point and had hardware swapped.
