I just purchased the new AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE for my GIGABYTE GA-MA790FXT-UD5P AM3 board in a XCLIO Windtunnel case. (all findable at newegg) So, my question is I'd like to get a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme, but didn't know if A.) it would even fit in my case (the case is a full tower and huge! so, don't think it should be a problem) or B.) if it'll even go with my socket. i see a backplate is needed for AM2 boards and such, but i can't find anything online about AM3's! if it won't work, can anyone recommend anything else? i'd like to get a heatsink ordered today so i can get my new rig up and running. Thanks for your help!

lol, wasn't overclocking so didn't think it belonged there, but didn't think it belonged here either except for the heatsink had the word "extreme" in it, so this subforum won out in my head. thanks for that confirming too, couldn't tell if the physical layout was different or not, but didn't look like it.
