Default Fan and Heatsink Compatibility

I ordered the parts for my computer, and they have already arrived. I ordered both a fan and a heat sink, but I am not sure whether they can both function at once. I would like to find out before I open them so I can return one if they are not compatible. Much thanks to anyone who helps. Here are the products I ordered:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor Model BX80562Q6600

ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

COOLER MASTER GeminII RR-CCH-ANU2-GP CPU+ Board Cooler

No, you can't have two coolers on at once unless you have a dual socket board. Keep the 9700 and send the Cooler Master back.
