I'm afraid the H80 is not compatible with the new bracket. The cold plate may also be a bit too narrow for the large IHS of Alder Lake.

Honestly, with a 12600k, i would advise to at least use a 240mm radiator anyway

Some people have been able to reuse old coolers when the motherboard has two sets of holes to use LGA1200 and 1700 backplates, but remember that the mounting pressure wil be very weak since the CPU sits lower than on LGA1200.

Weak mounting, plus narrow coldplate and 120mm radiator.. i wouldn't hold much hopes of it working even half decently, but you could give it a careful try if your motherboard allows mounting.
