Hi everyone. I just purchased two old Core 2 Quad PCs from a friend and am planning on parting them out for sale. The processors both have Zalman CNPS9700 LED heatsinks on them. I have looked at the specifications of the heatsinks, and I notice that Newegg's site has LGA1155/1156 support listed (and presumably 1150 as well). I don't know when my friend built these systems originally, but I am skeptical of whether the heatsinks really support LGA1156/1155 since I'm assuming the heatsinks were purchased before the newer sockets existed.

Does anyone know if there have been multiple revisions of this heatsink model? If so, how could I tell if the ones I have support the newer socket? It would be nice to be able to advertise LGA1156/1155/1150 support, but I don't want to falsely advertise if I have old versions that only support LGA775.

I would appreciate the help. Thanks in advance!

Dorset where else eh? >>> Thats ENGLAND<<<
got one on a 6600 C2Q and if memory serves me correct they don't support LGA1155/1156 out of the box

No LGA1155/1156 brackets/backplate is included in the kit (not when i bought mine )
which for me is a pisser as i'm in the process of building a 1156 sys to upgrade my 6600 Quad
would have loved to use this cooler rather than a stock intel
a LGA1155/1156 adapter kit may be available direct from the manufacture tho

Thanks for the help. I just sent a message to Zalman about this and maybe they will help me out. If they're nice enough to give them to me for a low price then maybe I will buy the brackets, but otherwise I will just sell the heatsinks with only LGA775 support listed and a link for the end user to buy the upgraded brackets.
