Can my Hyper 212 EVO fit on an AM4 socket?

    I've ordered a new upgrade for my computer:

    Ryzen 5 1600X
    G.Skill Trident Z 16GB

    However, the 1600X doesn't come with a stock cooler. My current cpu cooler, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, according to the specs list on tweakers, doesn't support the AM4 socket. I've read something; depending if you have (one of) the lastest variants of the cooler, it will support the AM4 socket. I do not know if mine is one of those, since I bought it from someone else.

    Someone from Cooler Master also said on the forums of their website that the 212 EVO will support AM4 with the needed upgrade kit that will come out for it. (

    (Yes, I need to clean them a bit, but that will come when I receive the new parts. Then I'll have to get it all out of the case anyways.)

    Now, my question is: do I have to buy a new cpu cooler that does support AM4, or is my current cooler just fine? And if I have to get a new one, what cooler would be the best one to pick? There aren't many CPU coolers that support AM4 just yet, or at least those which are available in my country. Here are all of the ones that I could get:
