AMD 64 Dual Core 4800 + Cooling

  SteadyEddie 12:23 06 Oct 06

Iam about to upgrade my system with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Skt 939 2.4 GHz 1MB Processor and am concerned about cooling as there is no mention of a processor heat sink or fan. Does this processor require a heat sink or fan or both?

currently available require a heatsink and fan. You need to check whether the CPU you are buying is OEM or retail. Retail come with, OEM without. Sometimes it's actually cheaper buying OEM and buying a separate fan.

If you're looking for the best cooling fan, then the click here is very highly rated.

Many thanks for your reply and the information. Imay very well be taking your advic if no fan/heatsink supplied with processor.

thanks again
