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.

Am3 has same bracket as am3+, and they made many coolers that work from am2/2+, and am3, also since am3 cpus were backward compatible with some am2+ motherboards i would say it should work.

Also if u have not bought the 6200, get the 6300, it'll be a lot better
