After receiving my brand new CPU I was excited, I was PISSED when I found out that my cooler may or may not fit in my case :fou: , considering a trusted member of this forum recommended it to me. I have a amd mother board, but it appears to not fit in my motherboard (MN27B-LA). I NEED this this to be fixed ASAP. My CPU is an AM3, and my motherboard is a AM2+. Please Help :cry: , here is a link to my cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Your motherboard should have an AMD bracket that fits where the 4 holes are around the cpu socket.


Oh Duh, I completely forgot about that. Is it fine that I only have 3 of the screws for it? If not were can I buy them/name of the screw. Thanks :)

Eww! not so good.
Can you not find a fourth screw somewhere?
Doesn't have to be exact = same thread and length would be good.
The head can be different.

Once you find another screw you'll be fine.
Some e-tailers sell retention brackets but idk if screws are included.
Easier to find another screw since i'll assume there's nothing wrong with your bracket.

Well from what i know it's a bit of a pain lining up the clip and slider thing.
I really can't assist you much since i don't run any AMD platforms.
I heard the instructions left much to be desired.
Patience is the key.
Good luck:)
