Coolmaster Hyper 212 plus be compatible with Sandy Bridge

Recommended Posts

Will the Coolmaster Hyper 212 plus be compatible with Sandy Bridge? I have heard of other companies issuing a new back plate to make their existing coolers compatible with Sandy bridge chips. Does Cooler Master have a position on this yet?

I want to get the I7-2600K and I already have the Coolmaster Hyper 212 plus cooler. Please let me know if there is any info on this. I want to build in early January and that is why I ask. I cant find a realiable and consistent answer.

Any help and insight would be appreciated!

Hi

So ANY 212+ will fit sandybridge and i do not need a new bracket then?

sorry if its obvious question however the add for the cooler i am thinking of buying (it is a 212+) has no mention of sandybridge support only 1156.

cheers

bigmike20vt,

Because it's not updated everywhere yet.

It dictates it supports Intel Sandy Bridge 1155 here:

Lga 1156 and 1155 are interchangeable, as far as where the holes are are in the mother board for coolers. I have the 212+ install on my sandy bridge system. No problem.
