That cooler is supposed to come with a different plate to fit the AM3 mounting holes, here's a quote from a review of the cooler:

Quote:
The unit has a very, very rigid bracket that mounts to the stock AM3+ socket. I installed it while it was placed on a static mount flat on a table, no flex- and I was still kinda scared I was going to break the board with the pressure I had to apply to get it seated.
