I got an old heat sink from an old MOBO, from intel q8400, it's much heavier than my new aluminum one with it's copper slug

I'd like to replace that for my i5-8400, will it fit ok?

Is that heat sink compatible with 8th gen?

And if it does fit, what way should I put it on?

Problem is MB and mount spacing which is different for sockets for those processors.
