    is that compatible with the AM3+ socket gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
  3. the cooler master 212+ says intel does not say amd?
  4. the title is a bit misleading, if you click details you will see this
    Compatibility
    CPU Socket:
    Intel: Sandy Bridge 1155 / LGA 1366 / 1156 / 775
    AMD: FM1 / AM3+ / AM3 / AM2+ / AM2

    EDIT:
    found a nice amd installation guide
