With the official announcement from Intel on the new Intel Core i7 processors that close, and with some manufacturers already claiming to have compatibility solutions for their cooling products, Thermaltake is also taking responsibility for its air and water coolers by enhancing them with LGA 1366 mounting kits too. Beginning today, Thermaltake will be shipping a new version of its V1 air cooler with mounting clips that support socket LGA 1366. For existing customers who have previously purchased some of Thermaltake's top selling air coolers such as V1, V1 AX and BigTyp120 VX, Thermaltake will also provide the new Socket LGA 1366 mounting kit. For those who own a Thermaltake water cooling kit or just a TT CPU block, the thermal solution provider will also provide a new LGA 1366 mounting mechanism. Unfortunately, the Taiwanese company will charge a small fee for the new mounting brackets, pricing and availability are still unknown though.

A quick question

I just ordered the ASUS Rampage II Extreme board and a i7 ExtremeEdition 965 processor. Unfortunately not many manufacturers produce a water block for the LGA 1366. I'm afraid getting a current water block (LAG 775 is slightly smaller) and a kit to make it "fit" on the mobo, won't do the trick. Should I wait until a dedicated LGA 1366 block comes out before upgrading to water cooling? All replies welcome since this will be my first water cooling system.
