You are watching: What is the difference between am3 and am3+


Hi guysIm yes, really interested in purchase a aftermarket cpu cooler and the one ns am looking at is a Thermaltake SpinQ VT CPU Cooler. On the specs I have actually read it says that that is compatible through AM2, AM2+ and also AM3. I have actually a AM3+ socket motherboard. Would this cooler still be compatible?what is the difference between the two AM3 and AM3+ sockets?

CPU coolers ~ above AMD haven"t readjusted since 939 as far as mounting goes. Merchants are usually too lazy to update their "support list" right away. AM3+ is basically AM3 with quicker HT bus, and also some boy tweaks come the power management.
