in this place, it doesnt say it fits AM2 socket, but supports athlon 3k(doesnt say either 939 or am2) , which ill be getting.

would this fit the cpu?
Im guessing it can since theres no diff between am2 and 939 expt memory type.

More about : fit am2

Wrong, AM2 is a socket type, 939 and AM2 are NOT interchangable. Retention mechanism is different too.
Why would they call it AM2 if it was the same as 939 pin ?
Stop guessing and do some real reading.

You'll be needing DDR2 RAM for an AM2 platform.

Thats why i came here to post because i was UNSURE about it and decided ask since i did not know.I can guess w/e the f**k i want.


I know that AM2 and 939 is a different soket type but the thing that i was asking was a fan type since some fans can support multiple of socket types instead of just one.

So try to understand what the persons' saying first and then reply or else, never post again.

AM2 has 940 pins
939 has 939 pins

In CPUs with AM2 socket integrated DDR2 memery controller while in CPUs with 939 socket integrated DDR memery controller

So if you choose AM2 socket u should choose DDR2 mem

Thx, but the thing is I live in Canada and i cant seem to find it.

Thnks, but
I KNOW that you need DDR2 type memory for AM2 if you read carefully what i posted up there.

I wrote, there seem to be no real diff between am2 and 939 EXPT the MEMORY TYPE it takes.

The thing that i asked was WILL THAT FAN FIT IN AM2 SOCKET?

What local website deliver to your area?

Perhaps if you link what you shop at, people here might help give some suggestions.

I thought the AM2 and the 939 were suppose to have interchangable heatsink designs

Additional info:

Geek.com - Socket M2

The other unexpected aspect is that existing HSF combos that many people have enjoyed using and upgrading from socket 754, 940, and 939 models will no longer work with AM2; a new HSF will be required to cool your next-gen AMD processor. While this will be of no concern to those who buy boxed CPUs with HSF combos within, those who buy the less expensive processors at trade shows and through local shops will now have to fork over an extra US$40+ for a compatible HSF combo. Compared to the price of moving from your current 940-pin AMD64 product with DDR up to a new 940-pin AM2 product with DDR2, it should be minor.

Nope. That was based on early speculations, before AM2 was released.

You still don't f*****g understand, I said no it won't fit.
Selective reading now eh ?
