Hey guys, I need some assurance that the parts I list below are compatible with each other.

Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-S2H
Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition
Cooler master TX3

My main concern is hardware compatibility, mainly the cooler master TX3. This is because according to newegg, it supports AM2 and AM3 but not AM2+, but it's listed under the AM2, AM2+ section on the cooler master website but AM2+ is not mentioned in the description.

Is this for a new build? I wouldn't get any of those parts, if so. There's a Build Advice form in my signature that you could fill out, and we'd be able to suggest a much better build for you.

I believe the clip connector is the same on AM2, AM2+ and AM3.

They are compatible, but the CPU and motherboard are one generation behind so if they are not cheap, you can do better.

Thanks dndhatcher, just wanted assurance they are all compatible.
