AM3 waterblock on AM3+ chip???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm at work so all the information might not be readily available.

I'm wanting to upgrade my processor but I haven't yet because I have my system liquid cooled and I didn't want to spend the money on a new waterblock also.

I currently have an AMD Phenom II x4 955 (AM3). I'm not sure of the waterblock off the top of my head. I'm wanting to upgrade to the AMD FX-8320 Vishera (AM3+).

Will I need to upgrade the waterblock as well or do most AM3 blocks fit AM3+ cpu's?

AMD has kept the same mounting system since socket 939(?). An AM3 waterblock should mount on a AM3+ motherboard.
