Hello everyone, i have a little trouble.

I already have an old PC running an AMD FX 6300, OC @ 4.2, with a good aftermarket cooler, and now I have ordered spare parts to assembly a brand new PC with Ryzen 5 1600x. In this order I have placed an AIO (Arctic Liquid 240) and yes, this is not compatible with AM4 sockets, but will do when Arctic will send me a new detection ring Kit for AM4 sockets. Now I have incoming all stuff ordered, and I cannot build my pc why this detention ring it seems to be shipped around May 31...  Anyway I have already the original AMD old cooler from the FX 6300 AM3+ and I ask myself, can I mount this one on the new AM4 Ryzen temporarily? So ask you, I can? (without OC, of course).
