hello, i have an gigabyte ga z77x up5 th , mobo.... And I have an Intel i7 3770k Using the 1155 socket! I got parts given to me , but all mixed up, Could anyone kindly tell me what bracket is for the 3770k and screws.(( I know it says 1156 , but it will fit my 1155 socket, i researched. thanks ))
The 1156 bracket will work with the 1155 socket, they are exactly the same, the only difference between the sockets is one pin.
Ok great , so doesn't matter if I get 1155 or 1156 bracket mount kit, I have to buy a new one as I don't I'm not sure if its there in the picture . Amazing help bro
Didn't your cooler or mobo come with a manual, it should say which bracket is 1155/1156.
I would of thought it was the metal brackets in the bottom of the picture with a plastic thing on top to hold down the heatsink.....
Ok ,I still need to buy the mobo, I thought I'd get prepared . I thought any one would fit as long as it did fit ? The one right in the centre ? I think... I'm not an expert . Yes I thought the ones at the bottom at first to .
What is your cooler?
It's a thermalright venomous x black .thank you so much for all this and still carrying on to assist me
