There is no such thing as coolers for Socket F CPU

There is no such thing as coolers for a Socket F. There isn't enough information on the internet for me to actually say anything that I can vote for, but here is my experience.

On my Tyan Thunder n3600B there are two couples of retention brackets. These brackets are screwed around the socket and it is thus possible to use any cooler that is compatible with Socket AM2.

Since I was stupid enough to buy a couple of coolers that are too big to fit when placed close to each other (the sockets are a bit too close, but that's what I get for getting an ATX motherboard) I also learned that coolers for Socket AM2 are compatible with Socket 754, and possibly all other recent AMD sockets. After all, it is just a clip and luckily the dimensions of that clip haven't changed much.
