Bob Holmes Posted March 9, 2013 Share Posted March 9, 2013 I'm old (71 this yr) and not very smart, and I am in the process of rebuilding my PC one last time while my eyes are still good enough to see the connectors. I plan to get a Corsair water cooling thing for an AMD cpu, but what I am reading, I'm afraid I just don't understand fully. When it says the cooler is compatible with AM3 socket CPU's, will they fit AM3+ also? And just one more, and this one may be a little vague but I don't know another way to ask. On an AMD motherboard with a AM3+ cpu, is it gonna be necessary to put on some sort of backplate behind the mb before the cooler can be installed? I had thought that was only applicable to Intel processors. That whole thing sounds scary to me, and it might make me just stick with the fan/heatsink that comes with the cpu. Well, thanks very much for any help, and let me apologize for my ignorance. But any advice you can give is very appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
