Tuniq 120 Universal on AM3 or 1156?

Hey guys, I have a Tuniq 120 Universal (not extreme) and it works great on my AMD 939 processor. I am thinking about upgrading to either an i5 750 or Phenom II 965 BE. Will this cooler work on either one?

It's not a make or break situation, but I am sort of on the fence with the two processors and this could make the difference.

Thanks for the help.

the cooler should work with an AM3 mobo off the bat, though you will need to get an LGA mounting kit from the tuniq website (or a tuniq dealer) to use it with a 1156 mobo.

i have the same cooler, and it only came with AM2/3 and LGA 775 mounting equipment, so unless they started bundling newer sets with them i imagine you will have the same.

but tuniq definitely sell the mounting equipment separately for all mobo types.
