Will AM3 fan fit AM2 motherboard?

I recently bought a Phenom II X3 CPU to use in a new computer. I'm not using the stock heatsink/fan that comes with it for the new PC, but I'd like to put it into an older PC. The older PC has an AM2 socket but the Phenom II is AM3. Will the AM3 heatsink fit the AM2 socket.

    It will fit. The HSF brackets are the same for both AM3 & AM2.
