Nepton 280L - Socket Compat. Question

Recommended Posts

Richard G    0

Hello,

 

I have a CM Nepton 280L, it's probably 1.5 years old at this point...

 

I'm getting ready to upgrade to Intel 6700K, Socket 1151

 

My Nepton documentation doesn't say anything about supporting 1151 however, the website says 1151 is supported.

 

Will my 1.5 year old Nepton support 1151?

And/Or

Do I need to purchase a bracket to make it compatible?  and if so, Does anyone know where I could find said bracket?

 

 

Many thanks in advance for any help!

Hey man

 

Welcome to CM forum ,

 

You can read at here : http://www.coolermaster.com/company/newsDetail-M1507210001dcf7-20150721.html?page=1

 

The new 1151 socket has the same mounting as the previous 1150/1155/156 sockets. All coolers that supported the previous sockets will support the 1151.

 

Full read at here : http://community.coolermaster.com/index.php/topic/13636-cpu-coolers-for-socket-1151/

 

If you're really concerned, I would recommend contacting support services and seeing what they say about it-- they should be able to tell you more definitively.

 

 

Hope this can help .
