ASUS Cooler Socket Issue Tags: CPUs Asus Cooling Socket Motherboards Compatibility Last response: December 27, 2009 5:53 PM in CPUs Share ATIHD December 27, 2009 3:10:01 PM 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 ...

The sockets are basically the same. 2 hole vs 4 hole but with the factory retention bracket it wont matter. obsidian86 a b à CPUs a b V Motherboard December 27, 2009 3:15:42 PM am2 am2+ and am3 use the same mounting brackets Can't find your answer ?
