Corsair H50 for i7-11700K?


Recommended Posts

Now that Windows 11 has arrived, I need to update my CPU (and mother board and memory) from the current i7-4790K to i7-11700K.

Will the H50 mount to the socket 1200?

Which H50?  There are about 10 years worth of variants. If your current cooler has an 115x bracket, then that will work on the 1200 socket that is different in pin arrangement only. However, I’m not sure that 120mm radiator is really ideal for where you are going as you’re about to double your CPU watts. Even if your loads are relatively light, I would want a double  frame radiator (240mm or 280mm) at a minimum. I think I would prefer a large air cooler over a 120mm radiator stuffed in the rear exhaust.

Yes, good idea. I think I'll go for the double radiator.
