    Yes. I can.

    Make sure it fits in your case. It's tall.
  2. From the specifications it says it only does AM2 socket for AMD.

    From the Vendor

    AMD has had the same latching, like, forever, man.

    Even old Opty HSFs from 939/940 will do AM2, AM2+, AM3, and AM3+ when it rolls. It wouldn't surprise me if some SocketA HSFs would work with the right latch arm.
  4. ^^Ok. Cool. Didn't know that.
  5. wow...manual sucks..or i suck
    besides i think i need retention module adaptor for this one

    I've used older/different versions and they've always had the latch included.

    The photo on the Egg shows the AM2/AM3 latch included with the S1283.



    It does not look as if they offer a separate AMD AM2/AM3 adapter kit for sale -- only an Intel LGA1366/LGA1156. If you purchased a retail S1283 and did not receive the AM2/AM3 latch you should notify the vendor or return the product.
