Yes. All AM2 CPUs are K8.

For the heatsink bracket? No. Socket 939 ones had two mounting screws, but AM2 has four. More even heatsink pressure.

So you'll need either a AM2 bracket for that or you'll have to get something else.

You could check their website or contact the manufacturer and see if they have a bracket available for AM2.

It does say K8 CPUs...but when was the product released, the info it provides might be outdated.

I don't have to take the bracket off (the little black thing), its just clips like the ones on fans.
