I'm planning on building a computer over the upcoming summer, but I'd like to buy parts when I see a terrific deal. I'm thinking I will go with the Haswell CPU, which is the new socket 1150.

I used a Corsair H60 closed-loop CPU cooler in my current rig and I really like how it turned out (it's an i7-870 and it runs at turbo almost all the time thanks to the cooling). I'm thinking I will go with another Corsair, or maybe the new Zalman series CPU coolers.

So, has anyone heard whether the current CPU coolers (that fit 1155, AM3+, 2011) will fit an 1150?

Thanks!

Affirmative. And scrap Corsair and their crap pumps. The new Zalman's look nice but provide no measurable gains. Turn your attention to NZXT...have you seen the first place performance of the new Krakens?
