CPU coolers for Llano on F1A75-V PRO

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm planning on buying an ASUS F1A75-V PRO. If you take a closer look at the socket, I'm not sure what sort of aftermarket cooler can go on it.

The Noctua NH-D14 would be perfect for my needs but I'm not sure if it'll be a perfect fit for the board. They mention that AM3 would need a backplate but I don't know if this backplate is supplied with the cooler, and if it would suit this mobo. (I read that all AM2/AM3 coolers are supposed to be compatible with FM1)

Any advise in this matter is highly appreciated.

(PS: If you want to recommend an alternate cooler, then my budget is $170 and max noise limit is 30dB)

I haven't tested personally, but it's been posted that any AM3 cooler should work with FM1. Noctua NH-D14 isn't compatible with FM1, it needs a backplate that needs to be purchased separately. If you buy that backplate then this cooler will be compatible with the socket/motherboard.

It uses the stock AMD back plate the comes with the mother board.
