  1. All started when my brother's ASUS H61 motherboard died and I got his Celeron G540 (socket 1155). I also had an mITX case with a dead custom PSU that I don't intend to fix (Hantol HC ITX02). He now needs another PC in his bookshop, so, I decided to buy a cheap mITX 1155 socket motherboard that would use an External power brick. And I found a great deal on a Lenovo m91p motherboard @ 22$ plus shipping. Or so I thought. This motherboard uses non reference cooler holes making it impossible to fit the stock Intel cooler (or any other cooler that I had laying around and would fit the case). So I decided to use the old cooler from a Celeron D 330 (2.66GHz) a friend gave me after his motherboard died... It seems to have a big amount of aluminum in the middle and have aluminum fins... It just needed some trimming on the side cause there are some capacitors. I kind of hooked it on the motherboard using an 14" fan protector I got from a dead Thermaltake and some M3 screws and nuts. Add some MX2 the old stock Intel cooler on top of it and the results where ~ 26C @ idle and ~52C @ full load (using stress on Fedora 22). Pretty solid! I then decided to add an silent 92mm Scythe fan and the results where even better ~20-21C @ idle and ~ 45C @ full load... I lastly tried to use it passively, after an hour idle temperature was merely @ 66C and It took 30min of full load for the temperature to reach 100C. This means that I can probably run it with one or two case fans only. This will be tested. The results show that the old Celeron's D (73W rated TDP) had some pretty solid cooling solutions, that you may want to mod and use for cheap projects like this. I don't have an 1155 4C to test, but i am pretty sure that this cooler would outperform even the Copper Intel stock cooler shipped with these CPUs. More pictures with subs... http://imgur.com/a/DbOLW
