I need to know if this will work with the xigmatek S1283 for my am3 motherboard because I don't trust the old fashion push pins.

The heatsink I plan to purchase: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The retention bracket: http://www.xigmatek.com/product/accessory-crossbow-ack-...

Gonna use it on my amd phenom ii x3 720 BE and my GIGABYTE GA-MA790GPT-UD3H

Anybody know? and does anyone know where I can even buy this if it does work? Let me know, thanks :D

1) Just purchase the Dark Knight S1283V, which uses the screws instead of push pins. You don't need to purchase a separate mounting brackets.

2) I believe the AM3 socket doesn't utilize the push pins or screws. It uses the standard AMD clip locking bracket (if you review the images, it is the bracket that has the lever on it).

Yep. And the Xig Dark Knight comes with both sets of mounting hardware.

Isnt the AM3 mounting the same as the AM2?

The Dark knight does not mention AM3 compatibility anywhere. I believe the s1283 does not need the extra mounting kit for AM3 sockets. Since the S1283 is cheaper it would be a better deal than a dark knight.

It would be a good idea to just email support at xigmatec, they responded to my question within a couple days to be sure.
