CPU heatsink compatibility

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,

  1. 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.
