    Socket compatibility for CPU cooling

    Hello everyone. I'm planning to purchase Deep-Cool Gammaxx 200 cooler for my current CPU (AMD Athlon X2 64 4800+) and wanted to know if CPU cage (not the socket / slot for CPU, just the black "square" where heatsink + CPU cooler seats) for F1 is compatible with the one on F2 processors.

    The reason why is because above mentioned cooler is not that expensive, has a pretty neat performance and is compatible with my current processors' heatsink cage and the one in F1 processors. However, it says nothing regarding F2 ones and I'm planning to buy an F2 processor (AMD APU A10-5800k Llano).

    Any advice would be appreciated. =)

    Shameless bump + update:+ update: I've read somewher that a guy contacted a cooler manufacturer's sales support / helpdesk. He was told that FM1 and FM2 are compatible regarding CPU fan + heatpipe + heatsink systems. However, I would not know if it was to gain a sell or to really assist a customer.

    Could you confirm? Thanks!
