Solved Will this CPU cooler work on my Phenom II 955 setup? Tags: CPUs AMD Last response: August 19, 2010 2:54 PM in CPUs Share yesitsmario August 19, 2010 12:31:07 AM I have this Rosewill RCX-Z1 in my closet and was wondering if it's compatible with this ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G motherboard I just purchased. If so, do you guys think I should use it or is the stock amd heatsink for the 955 better???
