    It will fit. Both the motherboard and the fan are type Socket 370. It'll work just fine. The reason that the cooler says "AMD" is because most people buy either Intel or AMD and they are usually not compatible. As long as the fan is Socket 370 then it will work with that motherboard.

    Not exactly,

    You will probably have difficulty finding a heatsink for that board. Even if it says is a socket 370, looking at the picture, the socket is missing and the cpu is soldered to the board. Since all heatsinks for socket 370 are designed for attaching on the socket...
    It's hard to advice without the board, but I think you will have to go gheto on this. The original heatsink/fan combo seams to be attached to the board by that 4 little white pegs ( not sure about the correct name ) . My guess is that they are similar enough to vga heatsink attachments, and so you might find some old vga, and steal its heatsink/fan for your board.
    If you find any other way to get a good and even pressure against the cpu, any heatsink will do the job, the one in your link included.

    I didn't spot that...! How can they call it socket 370 when there isn't even a socket...!

    Why don't they call it "holes-in-the-circuit-board-370".

    Do you have the board with you? can you post some close pics of the cpu area with and without the original heatsink ?

    And the exact distance between the four holes in the board ?
