question regarding cpu HSF compatability

ok so after 6 years of service my stock cpu heat-sink/ fan is starting to rattle once it heats up so a clear sign a bearing is starting to wear out since once it warms up good its loud and annoying. so instead of waiting for it to die im going to get it replaced.

i just want some advice, currently i have a g43t-am (v2.0) mobo or this more or less http://images.esellerpro.com/2131/I/713/66/g43t.JPG and a intel core 2 quad q8300


and im thinking of getting this since its universal
Amazon.com: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heat Pipes (RR-910-HTX3-G1): Electronics

my question is will it fit?, in the picture you see those 4 metal parts where the fan locks in, will it be ok?, need a good fix and need this computer to last longer since i cant afford to buy a new one at the moment and would like a "mark of approval" per say before i buy it

thanks in advance and i hope this is the right place to post this

It looks like the socket 775, the extension arms are on elongated slots, and it says it fits a C2 quad. The fan is four pin.

More importantly, they can be adjusted. I think you will need them.
