AM3 coolers fit on AM3+.

I just installed one of the older Hyper212+ coolers on an AM3+ board.

Any desktop cooler that uses the stock AMD retention system, from Socket 754 to AM3+, will fit. Coolers that have brackets you have to install onto the motherboard are a bit different. Hole pattern changed with AM2. So if a cooler is for AM2, it will still work with AM3+. Socket 754 and 939 used different brackets.
