Windows 7: CPU Cooler compatability

CPU Cooler compatability

Does anyone know if an 1155 socket compatible CPU cooler will work on an 1150 socket Z87 motherboard? I recently purchased an ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 and a Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell. I was planning on getting a COOLER MASTER GeminII Low Profile CPU Cooler and I was wondering if it would be compatable? Any help would be most welcome as I need to get my CPU cooler next month when I order the last remaining items for my gaming rig build

From what I have read it should work, only the pins have changed not the mounting specs. Maybe someone else know for sure.
