Will a i5 4570 cooler/fan fit a i5 7600k

Hi guys,
I am looking to upgrade my CPU and found out that the overclockable K series of intel CPUs dont come with thermal paste or a cooler fan. I don't intend on OC'ing my CPU so i dont feel i need to buy a aftermarket fan to maintain low temperatures. And i want to guy the K series one as opposed to the 7600 as i want the extra .3ghz.

Would it therefore be possible to fit my i5 4570 standard fan onto my i5 7600k?
Or do all fans fit the same and i am totally misreading into this?
(I have never had to deal with fans before, apologies for my noobiness)

Many thanks!!!

  1. I believe LGA115x uses the same mounting holes across all the different sockets but I could be wrong.

    Your not wrong, Intel has been using the same mounting holes so,

    yes, the stock fan will work. I am sure of it.

    Im not sure what a LGA115x is but the CPU and Motherboard i intend on buying are 1151 sockets, whereas the old motherboard and CPU (i5 4570) are S1150 sockets.

    Does the "x" in "115x" stand for any variation of a number as long as it is 115?

    May i also ask if this motherboard is okay for the i5 7600k bearing in mind i do not intend on OC'ing it? It will be paired with a GTX 1060 and 8gb of RAM.

  6. Those will go well fine together, as you mentioned you cant OC but beyond that they are compatible.
