Need heatsink suggestions for TP55 (Socket 1156)

The socket 1156 has a slightly different heatsink footprint. The holes won't line up with standard Intel round heat sinks. Any suggestions ?

  3. The Biostar TP55 MoBo will mount any Intel Cooler that comes with an 1156 CPU....are you trying to use a cooler from another generation CPU ?

    Doesn't matter - it's a socket 1156.

    No, I'm installing a used I3/540. Didn't come with a cooler, which is why I need to find out what make/models fit Socket 1156's.
