New Brackets for AM3+/2011

I would like to pick up this cooler today:

But my current system is close to it's last days (AM2 X2 4000+) and would like anything I buy to carry over into my next build.

How is Zalman about supporting new sockets with brackets? I would be buying probably Bulldozer or maybe a Socket 2011 SB, and don't want to have to grab a new cooler.

I can't say for sure, but any cooler that fits socket AM2/AM2+/AM3 should fit AM3+. AM3 processor will work in AM3+ boards meaning the socket is the same size, so theoretically it would work. Only speculation though, like I said I don't know for sure.

As to socket 2011, who knows, completely different pin count than Intel's current sockets, may or may not work.
