Can anybody help me with this question?

I have bought a ASUS Lion Square CPU cooler for my AM+2 socket motherboard.

But since this product is 1.8 years old, could it be that by any chance it would be also compatible to an AM3 socket motherboard too???

Then I would use it on a new computer with that socket, but I don't know if the Lion Square is or not compatible to the AM3 socket ...

Yeah it should work just fine, though i have never herd of it, LOL.

The sockets are basically the same. 2 hole vs 4 hole but with
the factory retention bracket it wont matter.
