Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is not actually compatible with LGA1150

The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2) is listed as being compatible with an LGA1150 motherboard, so I added it to my build and bought it, but when I got it and started on my build, I realized it isn't compatible. It doesn't list LGA1150 on the box. So I had to use the stock cooler I got with my CPU. It is just a listing error, so please fix it mods so someone else doesn't get mixed up too.

It is compatible with LGA1150, even if not listed on the box.

LGA1156, LGA1155, and LGA1150 all share the same physical layout, so as long as it lists one of those three it'll be compatible with the rest.
