AMD Ryzen 5 and fan Compatibility

  Zach Newsome 17:45 12 Mar 2018

Just a relatively simple question; Have purchased myself an AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, I have an ASUS Prime B350M-A Motherboard which I am 99% sure are compatible. I currently have an AMD Athlon X4 Processor, which is the one I wish to swap with the Ryzen. the heatsink I have currently is the Titan Dragonfly, will this fit the Ryzen 5 1600X ok? Thankyou very much in advance!! I am usually quite tech savvy but the processors I have always bought have had heatsinks with them and I know my luck the one time I assume it will work, it won't!
