    Has anyone got any idea what size the retention holes are on the AM2 socket, I see they're now 4 in the corners much like Intel, rather than the two at either end of the socket?

    Will a LGA775 block fit?

    Not sure how reliable this is but it looks about right (and was all I could find anyway).

    Gibbo should know seeing as he's had a play with an am2 system, I think one of the arctic freezers fitted, cant remember which one though.

    Bah, those dimensions are huge compared to other socket holes.

    :(

    Edit:- Think I might get away with drilling an existing block.
