Transforms AM2 and AM3 to Socket 775 mounting, which makes it possible to rotate the heatsink 90 degrees.
Looks like it works with Xigmatek among others. There's also a version for 754/939/940.

Looks like the one I used in my system. It worked well, though I had to modify the mounting clips for the Dark Knight a little. Annoyed that AMD doesn't make this easier... who wants to block half their RAM slots with the stock mounting?
