Is this heatsink compatible with this retention holder? Tags: Heatsinks Socket Compatibility Overclocking Last response: November 2, 2011 3:39 PM in Overclocking Share BeelzebubTerror November 2, 2011 4:22:29 AM I am planning to build a new computer using a AM3 socket motherboard. I have a xigmatek HDT-S963 92 mm heatsink but I am missing the a crossbow AM3 bracket. I am planning to buy a EVERCOOL K8-AM2-RM retention bracket but I am not sure it will fit on an AM3 socket. Also worried that the heat sink might not fit. XIGMATEK HDT-S963 92mm http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
