    LGA1200 cooler compatibility

    I'm looking into replacing my ancient i5-3570K with an I5-10400f
    Everything I can find online suggests that the coolers are identical - i.e. I can use my Big Shruiken 2b without using a different mounting kit etc. Can anyone else confirm that there are zero changes to coolers between LGA 1155 and LGA1200?

    Thanks!

    Just to confirm for any future readers - I simply transferred my Scythe Big Shruiken 2 from my i5-3570k to my I5-10400F without problems at all.
