headset compatibility

Does anyone out there know if I can put a Chris King headset on a 2004 Felt 45 Road bike that comes standard with an OS FSA Integrated Headset? I have recently started hearing some noise from the stock headset and want to upgrade....thanks in advance.

Hey thanks for the fast reply. I made a mistake on my first post, the headset that is currently in my bike isn't the FSA, its an "Aheadset" (cane creek), I think its the SAS model (although I can't tell). So same question I guess applies. I want to upgrade and the King seems to be the one to get. Also, King is making the "Perdido" as an "integrated" alternative even though they are opposed to non-traditional headsets...

The Perdido is not a drop in setup by any stretch of the imagination. But to answer your question. Yes a Chris King NoThreadset will work wonderfully.
