My System Specs

Smile ChillTec Ultra

I have a ChillTec Ultra piezo electric cooler on my 775 cpu. I'm switching to core i7. When I purchased this cooler there were no i7s. ChillTec sent me an adapter for the i7. My question is: some people have said that it won't properly cover the new cpu, and with it being used would have burned in to the 775. Will this still work on the new one or should I simply spend the money for a new one. It has worked extremely well for me, so I'm hoping that it'll be fine. Probably best just to try it but thought the experts on this site could give me some insight.

?? i didnt know that socket 775 IHS is smaller than s1366/1156 ??? i know that the newer the cpu, the smaller it gets.. LOL between pentium3 and i7.. i think it's just the mounting mechanism that they sent right? backplate and retention bracket.. i think the heatsink base will cover the whole cpu... that's just my opinion... anyone else?

The Chilltec will work fine with the new mounting hardware. There really isn't that much difference between the two.

Yeah I wondered what that person was smoking when that was said, because they are pretty much the same size. I'll be using that and if there's a problem, there are a # of good replacements out there. Thanks guys. Anyone tried the Ultra paste? I've used Mx-2 b4 and I thought this was just as good or better.

1366 chips are ~45mmx42.5mm IHS is 35mmx32mm
775 chips are ~37.3mmx37.3mm IHS is 28.5mmx28.5mm
AM3 IHS is the biggest, ~37.3mmx37.3mm.

If it was made for 775 only it actually might be too small, if it supports AMD cpus you're fine. However I'd still get a new heatsink, the chilltec guzzles quite a bit of power under load.

Take out a caliper if you're not sure.

EDIT: Intel 32nm chips are bigger than 65nm chips, it might not make sense to you but the size of the semiconductors have nothing to do with the size of the chip. The CPU die is smaller but the actual chip is larger.

Yes, and the Core centre of it is the heat production area and the ChillTec will cover it just fine.
