Default Core i7 (LGA1366) compatible heatsinks

It has been mentioned a few times by peeps in the Core i7 related threads so instead of posting amidst the pages and pages of chit chat, I figured a new thread was appropriate.

I've been chatting to some of the heatsink manufacturers lately and here's a list of confirmations I've got for LGA1366 support:

Thermalright - all Ultra series, HR-01 Plus, HR-01 4U, HR-01 3U and Ultima 90.
Noctua - All coolers. Free upgrades to LGA1366 brackets for current Noctua heatsink owners.
Scythe - All coolers. Brackets will be sold separately and parts supporting LGA1366 will be given a 'Rev. B' addition to the name. The new Mugen 2 will suport LGA1366 from the get go
Thermaltake - V1 and Big Typhoon VX will be updated with LGA1366 support. All Thermaltake water cooling ('LCS') will be updated for LGA1366 support. No confirmation of being able to buy the brackets separately but the new brackets have been given individual part numbers (A100069 for V1 and A100070 for Big Typhoon VX) so I would presume they will be made available separately.
Coolermaster - The V8 will have LGA1366 compatibility (should be in Aus @ Rectron in the next container due in about four weeks) and the Aquagate Max is being updated for LGA1366 with a likely revamp of the water block used - details were sketchy but it was mentioned it needs the block needs to be redesigned.
ASUS - Triton 81 cooler.
Nexus - FLC-3000 cooler.


If you hear of any more, drop a line in this thread

The Ultra 120 Extreme for sure is compatible with an adjusted bracket as I have used this HSF for my review.

I've got the same one chainy but there are two questions to be answered:
  • Is the bracket going to be available in the channel for end users currently with LGA775 based systems to purchase when they do an upgrade to LGA1366?
  • Will any other heatsinks in Thermalright's range be compatible with LGA1366?

Those are the areas that I'm waiting for further confirmation on

No need to wait Should be available as a easy to buy kit.

1366 Bolt Thru Kit , Thermalright supports all platforms now including Socket 1366



Since the release of Thermalright’s Ultra-120 eXtreme CPU heatsink, many computer enthusiasts got to experience the thrill of overclocking to the max. It did not matter if it was a DUO core or a QUAD core; Thermalright has always provided users with extraordinary performance within the realm of virtual silence.

At Computex 2008, Intel announced their newest central processor unit, the Nehalem. Advanced technologies and efficiency are what we all expected from the Intel’s new chip, so is the heat that dissipates out of it. For this reason, Thermalright has geared up all of its heatsinks series from desktop types to 4U/3U, to HTPC to support Socket 1366 based motherboards. So whether your Quad core CPU is for socket 1366, now you can go all out to the extreme because Thermalright has got your back!

Compatibility Thermalright all Ultra series / HR-01 Plus / HR-01 4U / HR-01 3U / Ultima 90

Noctua know how to look after their customers, I'm happy that I have a NH - U12P.

I wouldn't mind betting the Xigmatek 1284 Achilles will be released with a nehalem mounting kit.

The following shots are with a standard 775 CPU:




Looks to me like it'd fit a Nehalem cpu just fine.

+1 mate.

In all the time I've known of Noctua and been in contact with them directly (dating back to about 2-2.5hrs ago and before I was in a journo position), they always looked out for their customers and did their best to provide a product that wouldn't only offer instant purchase gratification but future delayed gratification as the part continues to do it's job well. The company providing free upgrade kits just sums this up even further.

It's a very smart move by Noctua.
