Coolmaster V8, changing from LGA1366 to LGA1150

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

 

I have recently upgraded my cpu from a LGA1366 to a LGA 1150 socketed chip. I purchased the Coolmaster V8 some years ago and had been using it on my LGA 1366....

 

...however when I try to place the CoolMaster V8 onto the LGA 1150.. the screw holes do not line with with the motherboard. 

 

It is my understanding that the CoolMaster V8 supports the 1150 socket, what do I need to be able to connect my Coolmaster V8 to the Socket 1150 motherboard? 

 

Is there some for of additional bracket I need? and if so where can I source this from?

Hi There,

 

i dont have like you have :)

 

But is Should work, is it the stock (original) or the GTS? Check the back plate which I believe is adjustable on the original if I remember right.

 

The hole spacing for all Intel 5, 6, 7, and 8 series chipsets is the same. There are only some minor compatibility issues with X79 motherboards due to the lack of a reference cooler and many motherboards having built in backplates. All LGA1156, LGA1155, and LGA1150 sockets are identical as far as cooling is concerned. The holes should line up.

Hey, its the original, I only have a single mounting bracket and it has LGA 1366 printed on it. after attaching the mounting bracket to the cooler the mounting screw holws do not line up with those of the motherboard (Asus Z97-K). 

 

When comparing the mounting hole placement with the stock 1150 (4790k) cooler it would appear that they are not alighed therefore will not fit to the motherboard. 

 

I do not have multiple mounting brackets, should I have had alternative brackets when I purchased the cooler? 

 

 

The motherboard is a Z97
