Solved Heatsink smaller than CPU Tags: Overclocking Cooling Heatsinks CPUs Last response: September 12, 2013 6:40 PM in Overclocking Share shadow32 September 11, 2013 5:03:37 PM I got a thermatake spinq cooler for my fx-8350. The heatsink on the cooler is the exact same size as the CPU. Will it run fine and overclock fine? I read 98% of heat is from center, and it covers the whole cpu ( JUST barely). I just want a 2nd opinion. More about : heatsink smaller cpu Best solution Seladon a b K Overclocking a c 75 à CPUs September 11, 2013 5:10:03 PM Heatsinks are made to cover just barely the CPU.
