I think I made a mistake - it's not the end of the world, but I'd like to hear what you have to say:

I bought a an Aquagate Mini R80 from coolermaster - I got it because it was simple and affordable and you don't have to know a lot about liquid cooling to install it.

Here's the problem though - my mobo is AM2, the aquagate is only listed as compatible through socket 940. Now AM2 has 940 pins, but it's not socket 940. Does that mean that my little investment is useless? Will I be able to cram the Aquagate onto my AM2 or should I get my money back?

pins don't matter, it's the retention guides that you should worry about if the AM2 and the 940 has the same retention guide then you should be fine. But I would take it on the safe side and get something that's actually compatible.
