using LGA775 cooler on LGA1366 [????]


P

I have an Asus LGA1366 mainboard, and it has two sets of holes for coolers.
It can take an LGA775 HSF as well as the larger LGA1366 HSF. The manual
mentions this.
Now a Pentium D cooler would have have the rating to cope with an i7 920.
It has a 0.6 A fan, whereas the proper LGA1366 fan is only 0.3 A.
So I guess the only problem is the noise.
I am curious if anybody has done this (just to get a system going when
they broke the orignal cooler)?

Depends on the individual CPU mated to any given cooler. First thing
on a new build's power up, though, is to go into the BIOS temp
readings for an idle read. I'd expect unacceptable high temps and
wouldn't run a cooler that wasn't rated for a more powerful CPU. Bit
of a pain to set one up, just to pull it out the first time you put on
a load and the CPU threatens to burn itself up.
