Are AM2 and AM3 retention brackets the same? For example this http://www.amazon.com/Gino-Retentio... and this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...

From the 2nd link, the title of the product is "CityNet MB-AM23-BB-BK AM2 / AM3 Socket Retention Mounting Bracket Kit."

So, just get the 2nd one.

Ya I kind of missed the am2 part of that, but I the other one has better reviews, and pretty colors :) so was hoping it would work on the AM3+ board I just bought on eBay that needs one.

Well, it's $6, you could try it, I think it would work. But even if it does have very pretty colors it's going to be inside the computer case, hidden from view for most of the time :/. And also with the reviews, they're reviews for a piece of plastic, I don't think it matters a whole lot ;).

Did you break the original bracket?
