I'm no expert and don't have much experience in the field but the CPU cooler I was looking to get is, according to the manual, compatible with LGA 115x. Now, it has 3 different holes depending on the socket size but all of the 115x go in the same hole so I assume they are basically the same size with regards to the cooler?
(I realize that the back plate doesn't really tell you much about the actual cooler but it says the same thing in the specs so I'm using the back plate to illustrate the terminology used )
I'm posting this not as a serious attempt to answer your question really, as I'm not qualified to do so, but I would like to know the answer too so I though I'd chip in
