Default General LGA 2011 cooling question / compatibility with 1366?

Hey all;
I am thinking of picking up a black nickel block for my cpu (specifically, the black Heatkiller 3.0...I already have the 'regular' copper Heatkiller 3.0).

I am thinking of getting this new block, strictly for the colour (trying to get as much black in my build as possible). I am aware its a bit of a waste of money, but I'll either sell my existing Heatkiller or put it in the folding rig.

My question is, I have heard that the cooling for LGA 1366 will be compatible with LGA 2011. Is this correct? Anyone have a link or a trusted source to confirm this?

I am only willing to dish out for a new block at this time if it is in fact compatible with my next build. Otherwise I will wait. (but I am tearing my loop apart next week so now is a good time to pop in a new block).

Thanks!!

from everything ive heard/seen LGA2011 has the same hole placement as LGA1366 only diffrence is that LGA2011 has a built in backplate so you will probly have to get an adapter for ur cpu block that has the same threads as the LGA2011 backplate

All modern sockets have a built in backplate.

And to answer Chrisk's question, no 2011 is going to have a different mounting system.

When in doubt, ask Noctua, they always know and always tell. Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

He means front ot top plate, under the cpu socket or integrated with the socket ( hard to see on the pics) I guess they will be also a back plate , but it's clear the front plate have tread on it so no more push pin.

Humm that's disappointing. I won't be buying a block now unless I can use it later, and if Noctua is changing the mounting system and selling an adapter, then that might not bode well (unless their mounting is different for some reason).

Exactly, sorry wasnt clearer on it, it has a back/front plate fixed to socket. what I ment was your water block will probly need new rods to screw into the LGA 2011 threads ive highlighted

"
With Intel's Sandy Bridge-E (LGA2011) platform just around the corner, we've also displayed our mounting mechanism for the new socket. Using the proven, time-tested SecuFirm2™ system, the new mounting will be backwards compatible with all Noctua coolers since 2005 and will be supplied to customers free of charge after providing a proof of purchase. The upgrade kit will be available when the new platform is launched in Q4 2011.

"

interesting and thumbs up to noctua for the continuous after sale support!
