    Will the ORIGINAL CM Hyper 212 fit Sandy Bridge?

    Greetings all. Further to the thread I posted last week about the best sub £20 CPU cooler, I've just spied that Scan have the original Hyper 212 for only £9 on their today only section but I can't tell having trawled google whether it will fit sandybridge or not. Too many of the results are talking about the newer Hyper 212 Plus. Can any of you clever lot confirm this either way? Don't want to buy it if it won't fit but the today only will expire later today and it is a cracking price!

    Cheers in advance.

    nope the original hyper 212 fits socket 775, AM2, AM3, 754, 939 and 940
    Not socket 1156/1155 (have the same hole spacing)

    I think coolermaster did a separate mounting kit for 1366 but I cannot find anything on it.

    I think the xigmatek mounting kit its the original hyper 212 http://www.scan.co.uk/products/xigma...knight-coolers but that's adding £6.73 to the cost

    Thanks guys. Guess I'll have to stump up the extra for the newer version. Still not going to pay more than £20 delivered though so will just have to bide my time.

    Cooler Master has since discontinued the Intel 1366/1156/1155 bracket for the Hyper 212 (and other CM coolers) but there is one on sale at the bay, link.

    With the auction for the bracket at £11 and the old inferior heatsink at £9 + delivery you would be better off just buying the new '+' model.

    @Nobull, why not ask themanwhocan@scan.co.uk if they can do the '+' model in there just today for you just bare in mind that to get the free postage you will hav to make the order up to £20 + vat or pay £4 postage.

    It's £23 delivered at play atm http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/117187...rlrefer=search
    Still very good for £23

    And as dfour said even if it goes on today only at scan you'd still need to spend more than that to get the free shipping (roughly £25)

    I'm sure I saw the 212+ on Play for £15 a few weeks ago. Wish I'd ordered one :-/
