Hi tpu fellas, I just finished setting up a new PC for my grandfathere his old Socket A was too laggy & old, so I decided to get him a nice AM3/sempron/2gb ram setup.. Ok now heres the problem get ready its really dumb.. Everything was fine, But somehow stupid fking me, couldn't just let of the mind the thing that the fans were too lound, So I unplugged everything, took the pc out and just let the PSU cable in and started it up to see which fan was making that lound sound, apparently it was the CPU fan, hey I didnt give up I had to put the finger in to slow it down a little and then I was 100 % positive it was it. I tried again till I finally broke one of the "blades" I couldnt care less about the 9$ the heatsink altogether costs, but I have to bug the friends from the city (about 80 miles away) to get a new one.. Now I have the old cooler from the socket A setup they are the same size, (80 i would guess) on the back of the new fan its written (DC12V 0.50A) dated 2011 the old socket a one is DV12V too but 0.15 AMP (Amp, not A like the new one) now will it work fine if I put it in ??? TL;DR will and Old fan for a socket A heatsink work on a am3 heatsink (I broke a blade on the AM3 fan) on the back of the new fan its written (DC12V 0.50A) dated 2011 the old socket a one is DV12V too but 0.15 AMP (Amp, not A like the new one) Sorry this is post so long & all over the place ideky Id really appreciate you're input!!!
