s1156 adaptor for original version Scythe Ninja?

I have one of the first versions of the Scythe Ninja, one of the ones that didn't include a fan. As it's still a great low airflow cooler I'm hoping I can use it in a silent i5/i7 system. Anyone know if there is an adaptor available that will fit the LGA 1156 socket?

i tried looking around i only came up with (from scythe-usa.com) that there is only LGA 775 support.

it IS a discontinued product so even if there was a LGA 1156 adapter it's probably out of stock everywhere

on a side note if you plan on using it for an i5/i7 and/or overclocking you MUST add a fan (or say bye bye to your new CPU )

Thanks, I'm going to ask the UK distributor where I bought it from.

It was originally good for s939 Athlon X2 4800+ which I think was circa 95W TDP, so I'm thinking it should be fine with even the i7 860/870 at stock clocks (provided the airflow is good, that Athlon 4800+ required wasn't recommended for passive cooling.) The lesser i3/i5s are lower TDP anyway, and I see Intel's website is now showing the S versions of i5/i7 as available, so I think it really is only a question of finding a bracket.

I asked QuietPC who are the main UK retailer for Scythe, no brackets available will fit. Very disappointing.
