Is there a way to make a 775 fan fit on a 1155?

I'm looking to buy a new CPU along with a new mobo. To be precise:

cpu
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm upgrading from lga775. The thing is, I already have a great aftermarket heatsink for lga775 (but it's kind of old, and I cannot find the model anywhere on the internet to show you). Instead of buying a new heatsink, as I will overclock my new cpu (to 5.0), I want to keep using my old heatsink. Is there a way to make this heatsink fit on a lga 1155 mobo? I've heard that on some 1155 mobos, there are 775 holes added extra with the 1155 holes. I do not see any lga775 holes on the particular mobo above, nor can I find any mobos at that price range with extra 775 holes (and firewire ports).

Also, one more question: does the i5 2500k even need an aftermarket cooler? A friend of mine claims that his father has the i5 2500k with stock fan, which he overclocked to 5.2 while staying at 26C for a long time without any problems (on turbo boost, I think).

Thanks.

just buy the coolermaster 212 for about $30 shipped, the best bang for the buck cooler for the 2500k, really the only cooler you'll need for that OC. temps are on par with $70+ coolers.

Ask your friend to show you his dads pc running at 5.2GHz on the stock cooler, and post us a cpu-z screenie of it :) 
if he's running that well, theres no reason you can't just keep standard cooler...

and no the stock cooler would be impossible to reach that type of enormous OC.
I did an IBT on my friends the other day and it went ot 80c on stock clocks.

I know this Ghnader, you know it and I suspect the Op has an inkling too, but if his mate is stupid enough to make a claim like that, I vote that Op calls him out and demands proof :p 
if nowt else, his mates in deep trouble for blowing up dads pc :p

Yeah, I couldn't believe it either. He sent me a picture of his task manager and cpu-z already.


(He does live in Korea. It gets pretty cold there, but still. I remember he mentioned that he was using an expensive mobo. Maybe that was why he was able to do this. Also interesting fact: everyone in Korea gets 10MB/s internet. Yes megabyte.)

I'll ask him to take a pic of the cpu itself and the temps later.

Also did you guys forget my original question :??:

Sorry man, back on topic, no, theres no reasonable way to mount the old hs if you dont have the mounting holes in your mobo,
dont know much about korea, but I'm on 20Mb broadband and my provider (Virginmedia) is rolling out 100Mb soon

^ You people in your first world countries...

I'm at home, paying my ass off for a 4Mbps line. Most users here still rock with 384Kbps, once. That's hardcore, yo.

Wow, I just realized the second heatsink you listed there looks almost exactly like my lga775 heatsink (except mine is copper and has one fan in between the heatsinks). I don't remember the price on mine but it must have been expensive as well. Some lga 1155 mobos do have lga 775 holes in them. I think I'll just stick to my old heatsink after all.
