Question about a CPU Fan/Heatsink Tags: CPUs Heatsinks Fan Product Last response: February 22, 2013 3:17 AM in CPUs Share ixMyth February 22, 2013 2:24:28 AM OK, So I am looking to build a computer and my dad had an old fan that he gave me. I looked it up (It's older one) and it says for AM2 and some other socket chips. Was wanting to know if it would work on a AM3+ Chip? I am buying http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and this is the fan that we have. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Thanks to anyone who replies. I have searched and some people say that AM2 fans work on AM3/3+ chips but I just want to be sure so I don't screw anything up.
