The mounting is the same, but you might want to check the hsf can handle the heat from the p4 as they do tend to run very toasty.

Whats the make/model of the heatsink/fan?

HSF = Heatsink Fan. It's the abbreviation commonly given to the CPU heatsink and fan unit.

Most Intel heatsinks will work for both the Core2 Duo as well as the P4 CPU's. What is the specific model of the cooler? Is it a stock Intel unit or an aftermarket one such as a CoolerMaster or Zalman?

Yea, it should work. Although the stock type coolers aren't extremely good at keeping them CPU's cool. How much did you pay for it?

If you can, you should return it for the one you originally ordered. I'm sure the Masscool should work better than the stock one.
