It seems i've been looking for weeks for a processor for the AM3+ socket but it seems they are all AM3 only with hardly any compatible with the AM3+ written in the compatibility list. I would like an atheistically appealing heatsink.

Some of the ones that say AM3 but not AM3+ are these here that I like.

Are there any other heatsinks out there that are both efficient and aesthetically appealing?

if it says am3 it will (most likely) fit on an am2, am2+, am3 and am3+ CPU :)

I've got a Cooler Master hyper 212+ on an AMD FX-8120 and it works just fine. Looks fine, performs as advertised, and can be had for about $25-$30.

The stock fan/heatsink was a joke.
