fit 1356 heatsink for 1156?
I have a spare stock heastink for an i7 970 kicking around and I have an i3 that I'd like to upgrade the cooling. anyone tried to put a 1366 hs on a 1156?

the spacing is different, so unless you can move the pins a notch closer to the center of the unit?

shouldnt work.

Doesn't look like it will fit then. Thanks for the info!

no worries. by the eye some things look alike, but arent quite :) i made the one mistake when i picked out a cooler that only came with 1366 brackets, for the 1156 build.

going back to the stock 970 cooler, that thing is a beast compared to classic stock intel ones. i removed the fan and jacked two noctuas on each side for some dudes build, looked ghetto if you looked but the temps vs noise were mighty cool vs stock fan
