Yes, any heatsink that fits socket AM2 will fit socket AM3. They have the same physical dimensions and mounting points.

No, it has to be made to fit that chip and fit your motherboard.

I just bought an open box SCORC 1000 on newegg for $36. I read a few reviews and they all said it was pretty much the biggest cooler on the market, and it has 10 heatpipes. I am going to put my own high RPM fans on it.

I'll let you know how it goes...

You just can't buy any ol' heatsink. It needs to be compatible with socket AM2/AM2+/AM3. If it is, then it will include the needed mounting hardware.
