Hello everyone, I'm a bit confused by the info I'm getting online, and just making sure it would not be a huge oversight on my part...

I have a very old Hyper 212 Evo that I bought in 2014 to go with my 4790K. I'm looking to keep the cooler, but replace my CPU with either a R5 5600X or a i5-11400F. I keep seeing that the 212 Evo is "still" a good choice, but I looked at my manual and the sockets are not listed as compatible (makes sense, they werent out at that time.)

Can anyone confirm that the cooler, as is, would mount and work properly? Do I need an adapter for either brand? There's an "accessorties kit" on CM's website, but it's very similar to the one I currently have in my box...

Thanks everyone!
