Good afternoon everyone........I have a fan/heatsink that I bought online that was "advertised" as compatible for a AM2/AM3 socket. I sent photos and model # of f/hs ("1A02WAN00" and other writing "N 2011 10 11 1C") to AMD tech support, and they told me it was a f/hs for AM3/AM3+.  Just wondering if anyone out there can help narrow it down. If I knew how, I would send photos of the f/hs......this is my first post. But you can find a photo of it here:

Any help will do, THANX!!.....Jimmy

The AM3 125W CPU coolers have 4 heat pipes and they fit the AMD coolor for AM2, AM2+, AM3 and AM3+ as the HSF connector has remained static.

It will also fit on F1, F2 socket mobo's as well since all AMD mobo's pretty much use the same braket for mounting the HSF.

so it really dosen't matter if its for a AM2/AM3 or AM3/AM3+ its compatible with all of them.
