Solved

I bought a CPU cooler that is LGA 1150 supported, but I have an LGA 1155 motherboard, will it still work?

When I first built my PC, and bought all the parts for it, I had kind of a panic attack over installing my CPU cooler, so I used the default cooler that came with my intel CPU. I'm now looking to overclock it but I'd rather install that CPU cooler that I chose not to install. Now looking at it, I realized that on the box it says that it supports the 1150 motherboard and some sort of AMD motherboard. Do you know if I am still able to install it into my PC? I'm a bit worried that it will not work.

Here's the CPU cooler I have:

And here is a pic of my specs:

If you know, please tell me.

    Awesome, thanks a ton :)
  3. The socket layout on the motherboards for LGA1155 and LGA 1150 are the same, nothing to worry about they are 100% compatible :)
