I have recently purchased the Thuban Black edition 6 core from amazon only to figure out it doesn't come with the heatsink or fan :(  I looked all around and couldn't really put my finger on the compatible one. Can you please try to find an average fan/easy to install heatsink(like pop in). I won't pay more than 30 bucks for it. I know I am a little cheap but I am tight on cash. Here are my components:

ATI 5770
PSU: rocket fish 500 W
8 gigs ddr3 ram
ASUS 890GX mobo
AMD Phenom II x6 Thuban Black edition 3.2 Ghz

What a coincidence. I was actually looking at that one a few minutes ago. Thanks for the fast reply. Now I gotta say, I am not that great at installing things but is this one an easy one. This is because I am switching to the 6 core and that requires a new MOBO which is a pain in the neck to install along with the cpu itself.

The videos don't say anything about AM3. When they say AM2 do they also mean AM3?

Nevermind the AM3 thing. It said it was compatible. If I go to the amazon page and scroll down, it says that the highest supported cpu is amd phenom II x4. I was wondering if it also worked with the x6's.
