LGA1155 (H2) - CPU Heatsink Dimensions - HELP NEEDED

Jump to solution

I currently have an i3-2120T installed in my media centre and I want to change to an i7-3770S because the HD video performance of the i3-2120T is woeful. The artefacting associated with 1920x1080 (1080i) HD video is drives me to distraction.

I want to know the height of the heatsink supplied by Intel for a i7-3770S CPU. My media centre case is only 1 rack unit in height and I need a low profile CPU heatsink/fan assembly. I can't find the heatsink specifications from Intel anywhere. The heatsink supplied by Intel with the i3-2120T fits in the case and is about 30 mm high, is the i7-3770S heatsink the same height?

Can anyone provide the heatsink dimensions.

Thanks

Michael

Have a look at section 11.2.1 of the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/design-guides/3rd-gen-core-lga1155-socke... Thermal Mechanical Specifications and Design Guidelines.

Michael,

The heatsink/fan assembly that ships with the i7-3770s is 15mm taller than the assembly that ships with the i3-2120T...

Thanks the document that Jason pointed me to confirms your figure of 15mm. I guess I need a good low height heatsink assembly, as I only have 40 mm of space available. Any suggestions.

Michael
