Zalman 9500 AT question

This might seem like a stupid question, but I just dont know the answer.

I have a Zalman 9500AT currently on my E5200 system.
I'm building a new i5 1156 system this weekend and was wondering if the Zalman is compatible AS-IS with the 1156 socket?
I dont have the original packaging and I dont recall if there was a seperate bracket in the box for 1156 or not.

So basically the question is this...
Is the Zalman bracket that came with the 9500 AT compatible out of the box with both 775 and 1156 or was there a separate bracket for each?


Thanks in advance.



secondary question...
just in case I get a bug up my rear end and decide to pick up a i5-2500k ....
is the 9500 AT bracket compatible with it? (this question is predicated on the bracket being compatible with 1156, obviously.)

^ No that CPU cooler will not fit as-is on a LGA 1156 socket, you would need to buy a mounting kit separately for it to fit on LGA 1156 - ZM-CS5A or ZM-CS5B
As for LGA 1155, I dont think they have released any mounting kit as of yet,...

thank you for taking the time to respond.
I appreciate it.

Saves me 30 minutes of tearing apart the old system for no reason.



Cheers!
