Intel LGA1200 socket will be compatible with coolers for LGA115x – review

Next year processors will enter the market Intel Comet Lake-Sthat will receive a new socket LGA1200. And although this will not allow installing the previous chips of the family in the new motherboards Coffee Lake-S RefreshSomething will remain unchanged.

Reportedthat the design of the clamping mechanism of the radiator and the placement of holes under it will be the same. In other words, the new processor may well cool the cooler from the old one. At the same time install the chip LGA1151 a more modern socket will not work, as the cutouts in the textolite substrate are located differently.

It is important to note that in the framework of a new generation of processors, an increase in cores is expected to reach 10. The older version Core i9-10900K. Therefore, cooling will require a fairly powerful system.

Besides, expected increased cores in other models – Core i3/i5/i7. All of them will also support multithreading.
