Hello all well i currently am in the middle of putting my new computer together and well its been 5 years since my last one.

Here is my cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here is my MoBo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

From everything ive read its my understanding that AM2+ cpu coolers are compatable with AM3 sockets. Maybe im wrong. If im correct can someone please tell me how to put this cooler together to fit. Just looking at it and the instructions are not helping me at all. Maybe im missing a piece or something.

Thank You

Refer to the AM2+ instructions in the manual.
