What is the type of HSF (CPU Cooler) mount used on the ML115 G5?

I want to make my ML115 G5 a lot quieter by replacing the CPU cooler.

I know that the management thing shuts the machine down when the fan speeds go out of range, so I will replace it with a cooler with a PWM fan that works in the same range.

The problem is that I do not understand the mount, as it seems to use four screws, similar to how Intel CPU coolers are mounted, and not using the bracket that AMD coolers are usually mounted with.

Does anybody know if this is a mount that HP has used. Will an Intel cooler fit?

Hi,

Comparing a LGA775 socket with the socket used in the ML115, it would appear both are simmilar in dimension, and the holes appear to be of a size that would suit a LGA775 HSF, Your best test would to be try it out, however, I don't think your HP warranty would cover you doing this :)
