My System Specs

Default TRUE 120 and i5 750

Alright, well I made a post on NCIX forums and it got no attention so I come for answers!

I've used a TRUE 120 before with my previous e8400 and completely justify the extra 30 dollars for a quality cooler. Please do not comment on how I should "just buy a xiggy or [insert other budget cooler]".

I already have a couple Yate Loons for push/pull but im unsure of mounting for my i5. Would I be able to use the 1336 or 775 mounting hardware? How about if I use THIS?

Any suggestions or solutions?

Thanks

Oh...and is there anybody else waiting on a shipment on xfx hd5850's? The shitty thing is that this is a fresh build so I dont even have another vid card I can use in the meantime so I'm left without a comp until the card comes in :S

Yes you need the bolt-through kit for the 1156 bracket
order this: NCIX.com - Buy Thermalright LGA1156 BOLT-THRU Kit for All LGA1156 Motherboards Ultra Series MUX-120 - BTK-LGA1156 In Canada.

With that board you sure do. There's a couple EVGA p55 boards that you can use 775 coolers.
