Buying a OEM version of i5 2400 so..
Will a i3 2120 (TDP 65W) stock processor heatsink fan be compatible (in terms of cooling) with i5 2400 (TDP 95W) processor with same LGA 1155 socket??
If not then, probably the reason also??
Thank you.

The design of the cooler for the lower TDP processor is different from the one with a higher TDP. You should look into a cheap aftermarket cooler alongside the i5-2400 like the Cryorig H7 or similar from Deepcool.
