Will be playing something tonight so will be able to see how hot it gets. If I ordered a Tuniq or Ultra Extreme do they have the plates for 1155 out yet?
I looked this up on their website already. LGA1156 and 1155 use the same bolt pattern, so as long as you get an LGA1156 compatible cooler it will also work with Sandy Bridge. Thermalright has a bolt through kit you can purchase if you already have a TRUE but don't have a compatible mounting kit. Got mine from Frozencpu and it should be here tomorrow.
