Becouse i used this cooler over an year now on my previus build and it worked perfectly and cool. But i've readed some where that its not possible to use 775 coolers on newer motherboards. Is that true ? Will i have to buy a new cooler as well ?

But it costs 5 euros =) LePhuronn a b à CPUs May 17, 2010 12:38:07 PM I wouldn't use that cooler on a Nehalem chip anyway - it's not really up to the job of cooling these monster-hot chips even at stock speeds. You'd be better off getting something designed to do the job - Cooler Master Hyper 212+ is nice and cheap and will do the job fine even if you do a serious overclock. Also, personally, I wouldn't get a GTX275 either - go for something like a Radeon 5830 (or 5850 if you can get the extra few bucks together). More powerful, cooler, less power draw. saaiello a c 133 à CPUs May 17, 2010 1:20:57 PM I would say try it out see what the temps look like it is a little bit on the small side but should be fine for a stock or slightly overclocked chip.
