My System Specs

Default Heakiller 3.0 LGA1366 works with LGA2011?

I see this exists: Watercool HEATKILLER CPU 3.0 Series 1366/2011 Conversion Kit Products Model: 14076 [14076] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come but honestly, it looks the same as the pieces I got with the block. Although my block was only for 1366, well before 2011 was ever announced.

Do you think the stock screws will thread into the LGA2011 backplate? Or should I "waste" $20 just to be safe?

I would be safe. I mean its only 20 bucks plus shipping so it can't hurt to have a little insurance

The stock LGA2011 backplate is an M4 thread. LGA1366 mount will work if it is an M4 thread more than likely.

The HK backplate I bought says it's M4 threaded, so I think the studs should just screw into the stock 2011 backplate.

To convert a Heatkiller LGA1366 to LGA2011, all you need is this: Aquatuning -Your watercooling and modding distributor - Watercool Umrstkit HEATKILLER CPU 3.0-Serie 1366 auf 2011 16201
I bought the kit. It works. It's 4 longer screws. Same diameter. Or buy some M4 screws locally and save the shipping.
