AMD 955BE http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And Asus M4A79XTD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Now, the problem is, the cooler I have is this... XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Which I thought said was AM3 compatible, but now I see it does not say that at all. Long story short, will this cooler work with the CPU Mobo, or do I need something else?

That's why there are AM2/AM3 combination motherboards. You should not have any problems. Reanimation December 2, 2009 11:36:54 PM Thanks, a ton, glad to know! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
