Socket AM2 coolers fit perfectly on socket AM3. The dimensions are exactly the same.

Phew thats what i thought but I was looking around and some CPU coolers list AM3 and some dont... I was gonna be a lil unhappy...

I thought they were the same size it was just the number of pins that made the difference..

Thanks AR
