Hi everyone, I'm new here.
I've tried searching the forum, and found some posts that suggest that Socket 939, AM2 and AM3 boards all support the same cooler clips, but what about the new FM2?
I'm upgrading from an 64X2 3800+ to a new motherboard and an A8 5600k processor, socket FM2. My old PC has a very good third party cooler on it which is very quiet, and I'd like to know if it is likely to fit the new processor, or will I have to shell out for a new cooler as well. The wattage is not too dissimilar, 89W for the 3800+ and 100W for the A8. I won't be oerclocking it either. I've read that the standard cooler on the A8 is very noisy.
Thanks for any help.
