  1. It says right in your links (under specs) that they fit a LGA 1156 socket. But I'm not sure what you are asking as per the 'removing sealed unit' comment. Unless it was a custom build h20 cooler and not a retail AIO, the pump, hoses, and radiator come off as a unit.
  2. Best answer
    Yes, they both fit.

    To remove it, you'll have to unscrew the radiator and unscrew/lock the cpu cooling block. There will probably be a backing plate that will come off. You will then want to clean off any residue off of your cpu using rubbing alcohol before installing your new kit.
