Had to buy a new motherboard. The 8700 doesn't go into my old one I thought?

The shape of the mounting holes for the 2600k are the same for the 8700, Intel designed their boards to fit old coolers.

Upgrading my 2600k to a 8700 and am wondering if I need a new bracket for cooler or not. I have a Dark Rock 3 on now.

No. The mounts are by socket type. If you have same motherboard your cooler will still fit.

 

edit: didn't read smh. Yeah what Luke said,

If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

Don't forget to tag or quote in your reply if you want me to know you've answered or have another question.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

do you have a 1151 bracket? there's your answer

Checked online and it says the bracket is "LGA775/1150/1155/1156/1366/2011 FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3". So, no I guess. Where would I buy a new bracket? Couldn't find one.
