Getting a new cpu fan

I'm currently using the AMD Phenom 2 X4 965 stock fan it was ok for the first couple of months but once I got my new graphics card and started to play higher tier games it seems like my cpu is getting overheated even when I'm just surfing the web I want to get a cooler master cpu fan (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065) but I'm worried that it wont work with my motherboard(motherboard is >> http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128565) or cpu or something like that so I'd really appreciate some advice on this

    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099 That's the latest version - the EVO. I'm almost positive you can use that on your Micro board, as the product itself comes with an adjustable bracket for "AMD:
    FX-Series / A-Series / Phenom™ II X4 / Phenom™ II X3 / Phenom™ II X2 / Phenom™ X4 / Phenom™ X3 / Athlon™ II X4 / Athlon™ II X3 / Athlon™ II X2 / Athlon™ X2 / Athlon™ / Sempron™" CPUs. It mentions nothing about motherboard compatibility, but so long as you have room in the case for the massive heatsink, you should be fine.
  3. thanks alot for the help :D
