I ask for apologies in advance if this has been a recurring thread but I'm still new to this forum but here's my question. I've been doing a lot of research on getting heat sinks and whatnot but I have an AMD Phenom II 945 AM3 socket type and found a picture of the AM3 socket type bracket and it looks so drastically different than the regular bracket. The pic I saw looked more like a big V than the flat X shape the other kind. Maybe that wasn't a proper image but how is that supposed to work. I am going to Fry's on tuesday and wanna get a cooler but Im started to get worried on what to do about installation.
ALT-question: What the best thermal compound to get in you guys' opinion.
