I recently purchased a Thermal Alright Ultra-120 Extreme Rev C. CPU heatsink for my PhenomII 925 AM3 processor. When i purchased this i made sure that it was compatible with the AM3 socket, however when i received it the box says it's for a 1366 processor. Also, the mounting kit it came with is also for a 1366 socket. With that aside, will i need to purchase a new mounting kit for this thing or should it magically bolt onto my AM3+ motherboard?

I have yet to even take my new MB out of the box so i apologize if i'm overlooking something simple.

Contact Thermalright and let them know the adapter was not included. I purchased the Thermalright Venomous X for my 6 core and it did not include the adapter and Newegg.com does not carry it. Newegg offered to refund the cost and shipping however Thermalright Sent me out the correct adapter free of charge. You need the AMD Socket AM2 / AM3 Bolt-Thru-Kit Rev.2. Contact them @ support@thermalright.com.

I've contacted Thermal Alright regarding a new adapter. Thank you for steering me in the right direction!
