Coolermaster Tx2 on socket 1156 Tags: Heatsinks Cooler Master Socket Intel i5 Overclocking Last response: January 2, 2011 1:22 PM in Overclocking Share cah59 December 30, 2010 1:12:54 PM I want to replace the stock cpu fan on an i5-760. I have a TX2 from a previous socket 775 build and was considering using it in lieu of the stock fan. Does anybody have any experience adapting the TX2 to such a situation?

I would suggest just getting a new cooler and not risk having a botch-job . abully a b K Overclocking January 2, 2011 11:34:27 AM watch this video on how to do this... its pretty easy on a cooler with mounting kit ... it may work...
