Hi, i'm in the process for building a gaming pc. I'm wondering if the Corsair H100 Hydro series water cooler would fit onto Amd3+ bulldozer 3.3ghz cpu. I've looked up the specs for the water cooler and it only says Amd 3 not Amd3+ so i'm not sure if it would fit.

Any help much appreciated

Other parts i might use:
Asus M5A78L-M USB3
Corsair XMS3 CMX8GX3M2A1600C9
AMD Bulldozer FX-6100 6 Core 3.3ghz
ati radeon HD 6770


Sorry if i posted this in the wrong section ;p

Yes it will fit. Make sure to use the right brackets also.

Also is this water cooler all i'll need to cool the cpu? I've seen pictures with blue tubes and such aswell as this, are the blue tubes just extras? ;p

The blue tubes are custom water cooling, this is just a closed loop water cooling unit.

For a 6100 this is plenty. A custom system if you have the knowledge can give you an advantage but Corsair is a reputable company, and if you want great watercooling the H series is perfect. My 2600k runs around 20c idle.

This is what you are seeing:

You'd spend more money on a custom most likely. And customs take a bit of research but can be done on a weekend. But really, the H100 is a great cooler and will be fine for you.
