    i know the Cpu is backwards compatible to work with Am3 but does that mean the heatsink and fan is aswell?

    im getting a FX-4100 which is am3+ so i need a AM3+ heatsink and fan correct?

    I am pretty confident that they are the same dimensions and will fit the same as the other.

    If you buy a retail processor it will come with a heatsink/fan.

    The AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ mounting bracket is identical.
