Hey guys thanks for the reassurance guys, Ezio in particular, cheers for clearing that up man! and yeh I dont know why I said it was am3+ sorry about that. Does that matter though? its got me confused as to what it even is now!
I just gave it a quick google there and I found it hard to find some detail on it. I think it is just for AMD cpu's or something though right? And yeh jed I had to end up getting a different cooler, the stock cooler was very bad.
