View Full Version : [all variants] New Socket AM3 CPU Cooler

August 3rd, 2009, 11:44 PM
I'm looking for a new CPU cooler for my AMD Phenom II X3 710 (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103648) as the stock CPU cooler just doesn't seem to do the trick. I also have this inside a Thermaltake LANBOX Lite (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133045) so space is limited.

If anybody's running a socket AM3 CPU with a non-AMD cooler, I'd really like to know what you're using and how well it works.

I've heard that AM2 CPU coolers will work...can anybody verify this?

Thanks in advance.

AM2 heatsinks will work. http://www.silentpcreview.com/article30-page1.html

AM2 heatsinks are the best
