Hello everyone, just been to a friends house and saw his gaming rig, with a h80, got a question he didn't know the answer,

Haswell due 2013 will not be lga 1155, i've read online, so then a h80 will not work with that processor?

Or will there be socket adaptors?

Like most coolers and water blocks, when they come out there will be new brackets or adapters. By then they might not support the H80 and there will be a replacement.

Corsair coolers (in my mind) are somewhat disposable...most people that use them really only use them once and don't look to upgrade to new hardware expecting a socket mount support change for it.
