I'm not able to find the info about Intel's i7 4930K box stock cooler dimensions.

Intel homepage mentions that this CPU can be bought in two flavors - boxed version (with cooler), and naked tray version. However, there is no info about the cooler's overall dimensions.

Anyone know them?

The reason for the question is that I'm not sure if stock cooler will fit in 3U rack case or not.

Basically, I'm interested in cooler height.

  • @Ramhound Where exactly have you found the information that "Intel Stock fan hasn't changed in years"? I doubt this is true due to different CPU sockets. I would appreciate if you could prove I'm wrong. Sure, I have a huge selection of fans out there, but I'm not willing to pay for it unless I have to. – Andrejs Cainikovs Dec 2 '14 at 21:09
  • @Ramhound Thanks! I have found that stock cooler for socket 1155 is 50mm high: tomshardware.co.uk/forum/309472-28-dimensions-hard-find Please post your comments as an answer, and I'll approve it. – Andrejs Cainikovs Dec 2 '14 at 21:21
  • Wow. I've got a downvote for a perfectly valid question. O.o – Andrejs Cainikovs Dec 2 '14 at 21:21

    Actually you're both right and wrong. The OP is talking about a LGA2011 model, which don't come with heatsinks. The 'mainstream' models do. – Journeyman Geek Dec 3 '14 at 14:32

Surprisingly, latest Intel i7 CPU's for LGA 2011 socket does not come with stock cooler anymore.

I hope this answer will help people decreasing delays in computer building by giving a hint that you need to buy a cooler for latest LGA 2011 i7 models.


  • IIRC the EP models don't. The mainstream ones do – Journeyman Geek Dec 3 '14 at 14:28
