June 21, 2013 5:46:17 PM 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.
