I bought an AMD athlon II X3 440 with a ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 motherboard, the heatsink and fan seems really cheap and cheesy, so i would like to see what heatsink+fan i could get to put in for this CPU to cool it off more effectively. I dont know much about options but i have heard Zalman has really nice heatsinks, i was looking at this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but doesnt seem to fit the socket i am currently using. Which heatsink+fan would you recommend for my CPU?

I highly appreciate yoru responeses.

the zalman will fit your socket, it fits AM2/AM2+/AM3 (all three use the exact same HSF set up)

i have the same CPU and use a CM 212+, works really well. either way you will be installing a universal bracket.
