CPU heatsink compatibility Tags: CPUs Heatsinks LED Monitor Last response: September 23, 2011 6:58 PM in CPUs Share Sasakie September 23, 2011 6:51:08 PM I'm thinking of purchasing a new CPU heatsink but I've noticed a lot of people complaining about incompatibilities with motherboards/cases. Is there a good way to determine whether or not a heatsink will fit into my setup? Right now I'm looking at purchasing Zalman CNPS9900A LED Low-noise 120mm Blue LED CPU Cooler 2 or Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 4 Heat Pipes I have an Asrock p55 extreme mobo in a coolermaster HAF 932 case. Thanks, More about : cpu heatsink compatibility BlackHawk91 September 23, 2011 6:58:41 PM Both CPU heatsinks are compatible with any 1156/1155 mobo, so you shouldn't have any problem, however, i suggest you double check the compatibility with your specific motherboard. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
