II am geting a new pc with and asus maximus hero 7 z97 motherboard and i7 4790k cpu.

Actually I have a i7 920 socket 1366 with the cooler master hyper 212 plus.

My question is: Can I use the cooler with the new motherboard and cpu or I need to buy a new cooler or I can buy the brackets for the socket(1150) of the new pc?


Thanks in advance

If you have the 1156 bracket for your cooler, it should work just fine with the 1150 socket, since the hole spacing is the same :)


If you don't have the bracket, you should be able to order them if you want to keep using your CPU cooler.
