Hi, I recently bought Biostar K8M800 and I had a leftover AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ CPU, so now I tried using the old heatsink that originally came withh my old dead computer but it doesnt fit at all on the black outline bracket that is on the Biostar Mobo. I would really appreciate any advice on what kind of heatsink/fan to get for this MB.

I used an ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro on my old PC and was very impressed. This cooler works with Sockets 754, 939, AM2, and some Opteron processors
