Hammer going to be compatible /w K7 HSF?

I'm guessing not, but I am using the retail HSF right now and wanted to upgrade, but I'm also going to get a Hammer if they work out nicely.

But I don't want to buy a nice HSF and then not be able to use it with the Hammer.

  1. Not, since they are not Socket A.

  2. Nope, definitely not. Hammer uses a new HSF retention mechanism. [H]ardOCP has a nice little <A HREF="http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=MzAx" target="_new">article</A> describing it, in case you're interested.
