I just came across a problem, as mentioned by the guy in the post you recommended some processors have 2 coils and some have 3, my MDD has only two, thus only room for two.
the only processor I could find cheaply has three coils and wouldn't work without a heat sink swap, my final problem, I do not have a different heat sink.

This makes me think though, I wonder if you could cut off a very small piece of the existing heat sink to make it fit on a processor with 3 coils?
