Check to see if they are the same. If they are, then go for it.

I have doubts if they would fit. I have never used AMD, so cant say exactly. Wait for the others.

Doubt it. The fan will fit, but there is no telling if the HSF that came with a low end (read cool) Sempron will also work on a "high end" (read hotter) x2. Unless both chips have the same rated heat output, 45W or 89W, etc, I'd look for a cooler as well.
