Help in compatibility of selecting new components.
Hey toms, I need to know if my Pc Cooler SilenX(friend gave me till I get 212), will work on a am3+ mobo if I install a phenom ii x4 965 BE. If not, then will a socket lga 1155 out perform my phenom? Or should I just get another am3 motherboard?
Should I upgrade in general?? Thanks.

It's much better to just get an LGA 1150 mobo instead of 1155 as lga 1155 is using Ivy Bridge which is dead now. Also there are many different models of the SilenX cooler, which one is it?
As long as the CPU cooler has an AMD mounting bracket it will work on all AMD boards. Depending on what CPU you get, an LGA 1155 CPU will outperform a Phenom II. To be honest though you are better off buying a newer 1150 socket CPU as it will be cheaper and will offer better performance.
