It should fit on the motherboard easily, that's not a problem. This cooler is quite heavy though, as long as the motherboard is properly and
thoroughly secured to the case, you shouldn't have any problems with fracturing of the motherboard (I've heard horror stories of this very thing
happening with heavy coolers, though they are few and far between).
What you should be worried about is if it will fit in your case. I would say that it probably won't fit in an ATX micro or mini tower, it will
probably fit in an ATX mid tower (though I would do some measurements to make sure), and it will almost definitely fit in an ATX full tower.
i need a good cpu cooler so i can overclock an am3 dual core black edition to a quad core.
To my knowledge, this is not possible, as the hardware is not there to make a dual-core processor into a quad-core processor, and overclocking would
not change this fact. Unless there was some physical hardware modding (which wold be difficult, if not impossible for even expert engineers), I just
don't see this happening.
However, if you meant you want to overclock your dual-core to run at the same speed as a certain quad-core processor, this is entirely possible, and I
apologize for the misinterpretation.
