    Looking to order a heatsink ( air ) or possibly liquid cooler.
    I'm confused on how to filter my searches on newegg.

    What is the correct fitting?
    Compatibility

    LGA 1151

    AM4

    LGA 1150

    LGA 2011

    AM3+

    AMD AM3 / Intel 1150

    AMD AM3 / Intel 2011

    AMD AM3 / Intel 1155

    AMD AM3 / Intel 1366

    LGA 1155

    LGA 1156

    Legacy CPU Socket

    Intel LGA & AMD Socket
    (67)

    LGA 2066

    _______________
    And in each of these there are "subcategories"
    Am I looking for anything that says FM2+? Does it have to have FM2+/FM2?

    I'd spend what you would on a cooler for upgrades instead.
