HS&F Q + sandy bridge and what I got

Hey there,

Just have a question and also wanted to share what I purchased.

Does anyone know if the socket 775 heatsinks will fit the 1155 socket? I'm guessing not but I'm not sure how much the heatsink mounting holes has changed. Just observing it doesn't look like it changed all that much and I'd like to keep the heatsink I have now. I got the ZEROtherm Nirvana NV120 PWM 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler. Now it looks like you can get mounting brackets to fit a 1156. ZEROtherm ZC-1366/1156 Clip Kit for LGA 1366/1156 Socket I just noticed that - probably should have bought it oh well. I think I just answered my own question.

So here's what I got. I like asus motherboards because of their layout, driver support, and BIOS is constantly getting updated. I also like their "auto detect motherboard" feature on their website so I don't have to remember what I got. I got the deluxe because it's the same layout as to what I have now and it works out for me. I got the 2 year replacement plan just because it just came out and I'm being paranoid. I'm a big fan of EVGA they have great support and right now there's a nice combo of just cause 2 + mafia 2 coupon for free with a purchase of their 570. The superclock was only 10 bucks more might as well. I got the 2x 4GB sticks for 8GB of RAM because its 99 bucks with a 15 dollar promotional code which is included on the item itself.

Some heatsinks list multiple cpus they work with. All heatsinks that work with 1156 should work with socket 1155.

Ya I looked at the site and it listed the 1366 socket but not the 1156. I don't even remember where I kept the spare parts to be honest. It looks like I can buy the backplates for my heatsink tho which includes 1156 backplate. I'll just order that its 4 bucks. Cheaper than buying a new heatsink. I gotta order a headset anyway.
