Default hsf compatibility

Hey all,

Well me and a buddy of mine just put together his new AM2 system, but it appears we bought the wrong kind of heatsink. Newegg had it listed as compatible wityh AM2, while the product identifictation specified skt. 939 compatibility. Stupid me, I just trusted Newegg, but anyways.. The stock hsf is running now, but instead of returning the s939 one we bought, is there any sort of bracket that will allow us to use the 939 on the AM2 board?

thanks for any help.

The thing is that I don't know if it's still RMA 'able because we opened it up before we realized that it wasn't the right hsf for the socket.. I'll call Newegg on that one, but I wish we could keep it, it's this one btw..
