It seems that there is also only 4 different air coolers available for the new 1150 socket. Is that correct, or will older socket coolers work with it?

Hi. Most will fot multiple sockets. A cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO will do nicely.

I agree, the 212 Evo is a nifty little cooler, & you can do a very small OC while you're at it too!

On this forum, that's what everyone seems to recommend. There are others though. You need to look at benchmarks - for cooling and noise and work out your budget. See: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/CPUCooling/774

No there are numerous air coolers available for the 1150, they Hyper 212 EVO provides about the best bang for the buck though, guessing you are going a K series, so the 4770K with the EVO is good through about 4.4 at 24/7, the 4670K a bit higher 4.5 or so if running 24/7. Phantek has a few, as does Zalman, CoolerMaster, Noctua and others, might look here:

Don't just look at coolers for the 1150 socket,it has the same retention holes as the 1155/1156 socket so coolers for these will fit too.
