I'm now searching newegg.com for compatible heatsinks for my CPU and honestly I have no idea what I'm looking for.

I do know my heatsink is manufactured from Cooler Master, but I do not want to purchase one that is not compatible for my system.

My computer is a Intel Celeron D Processor 2.93 GHz.

However, on Newegg, they have different socket numbers and I'm not sure what that is.

Can anyone help me out?
