LGA1151 mounting holes are identical to 1150 or 1155 - no reason any of the solutions listed wouldn't work

the mounting holes on each 1151 board are the same as 1150, 1155, and 1156. Only the number of pins in CPU socket are different. Have you got some proof this "Zalman 3" doesn't fit?

Beware of LEPA warranty. They will never respond to your claims.

Yeah that Lepa AIO seems like a ridiculous deal. It's got pretty good consumer reviews and pretty good reviews from tech outlets. Am I missing something?
Edit: some reviews say the fans can be pretty noisy but almost disappear at lower voltages.

Yep...I no longer get excited over Frys e-mails because the good deals are usually in store only.

That would be my only concern with this liquid cooler. Corsair will at least back you up and pay for your hardware if the cooler fries it via a leak.

The mounting spacings are exactly the same. I have mounted and moved Zalman and Thermaltake AIO liquid coolers across 1150 and 1151 motherboards several times. Items may not explicitly list 1151 as compatible simply because the products and their packaging design predate the socket. That doesn't mean that it won't necessarily fit.

You must be doing something wrong or the backplate u have is defective. The mobo holes on all 115x boards are identical. The number only reflects the number of pins on the CPU which is to prevent people from putting in the wrong CPU.

I've been building computers as a hobby for 10+ years and worked with so many AIO liquid coolers but it just felt weird when I tried to fit the Zalman 3 on the MSI Z170A Kraig Gaming mobo like it's not designed for this mobo at all. I'm not sure there's something wrong with the cooler or the mobo. I'll give it a shot again tmr. Thanks for your confirmation that 1150 cooler can fit on 1151.

On some designs, you can have the things upside down where they interfere with the 3 little bolt protrusions on the cpu socket plate.
