Okay so this is my mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131736 And this is my aftermarket CPU fan/heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118090 My question in this matter is, will this aftermarket fan/heatsink fit this Motherboard? I've looked around a bit and google doesn't help me so much but I'm curious because the fan doesn't say AM3(plus) socket. Plus button is broken. This is going to be a part of my christmas computer build and it's going to include one of the bulldozer CPU's but haven't choosen yet. If anyone can help me confirm that it will fit or not, seeing as there is not AM3plus fans currently on newegg, then it would help a lot. Thanks anyone who reads, and helps!
The AM3 and AM3+ CPUs use the same heatsinks. Your Coolermaster CNPS5X will be fine.
Thanks so much, this is going to help me so much in the future!
