MOBO question(S)

Hi few days ago, I went up on newegg.ca. Most ASUS AM3+ motherboards comes with hidden core unlocker, overclocking and supports AM3 processors.

Are all motherboards the same size?(if not do I need to replace my HP case?)

Will most new motherboard still support 3pin heatsink cooling fan?

Will my rosewill 450watt power supply will be compatible with the new motherboards?

Do I have to buy a new OS window7 if I replace a motherboard?

Since I don't want to make another topic, I'll ask one more question: If my AMD processor is internally damaged, is there a way of fixing it instead of buying/upgrading a new processor?<--totally off topic. But please answer it.

    I haven't put thermal paste on my CPU for about 3months. Then computer started to have BSOD, unexpected crashes and sometimes overheats. At the moment, I do have thermal paste put on. It still leads me to crashes. But just not that often. Surfing through web and playing casual games doesn't lead me to crash. But playing something that requires higher specs makes it crash.

    OK, u don't have to change it like oil in the car, only when u remove the cooler.

    Are u now running without any paste? Is it just cooler sitting on the CPU and no thermal paste?

    Im running with paste right now with a cooler. But it still crashes. None of the pins are broken.
