Noctua Shows Off LGA2066-ready Retention Modules

Noctua showed off protoypes of variants of its various high-end CPU coolers, which come with support for Intel's Core X family socket LGA2066 processors. While LGA2066 has a higher pin-count, it has the same exact CPU cooler mount-hole spacing as LGA2011(v3), and as such, any LGA2011-compatible cooler should run on LGA2066. All Core i7 LGA2011(v3) chips are either 140W or below. Noctua on its part, is confident that that all its LGA2011(v3)-compatible coolers run on LGA2066 by default, and is willing to giveaway LGA2066-supporting SecuFirm 2 retention modules for free, for users of older Noctua heatsinks which can handle such high thermal loads.

I hope my D14 is compatible with Skylake-X. It has been going strong for past 6+ years.

As long as it has the bracket for the LGA2011, it should be compatible. Seems that the hole spacing is the same as in the older HEDT sockets.
