TZ68A+ ASRock Z68 Pro Mounts

Does anyone know if either of these motherboards come with 755 mounting holes for the CPU heatsink?

Just want to know if I can use my current Zalman 9700 mount or need to buy a separate one. Thanks

The new Zalman's compatibility say Intel LGA 775 / 1155 / 1156
AMD Socket AM3 / AM2+ / AM2 / 940 / 939 / 754

And they also say this -
CPU Support: Pentium 4, Celeron D, Pentium D, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Sempron, Athlon, Athlon FX, Opteron, Dual-Core Opteron, Phenom, Athlon X2, Phenom II, Athlon II
Note(1): Customers that purchased coolers before the inclusion of support for socket 1156, can purchase the separately sold ZM-CS5A or ZM-CS5B mounting kit for installation onto socket 1156.
Note(2): The mounting kit ZM-CS4A can be purchased separately for installation onto socket 1366.
So if you go by that information you can decide if yours will fit or not.

I used Zalman 9700 on my old build witg 775. Now got i3(1155) and AsRock Z68 Pro3. It says you can mount 775 on the motherboard and indeed you can if only it wasnt that metal thing on the other side. I couldnt mount the plastic bracelet there because of it. I suppose you shouldjust buy 1155/1156 additional mount kit instead.
