Currently building a New gaming PC on the cheap using some parts from ebay . I've seen AMD FX4130 and AMD FX4100 on ebay . Both only come with the CPU NOTHING else .I know I need a heat fan/sink not sure want ones are good and compatible, looking for one that is rather cheap (under £20 can be used not bothered) .Is there anything else i need to consider and also are all motherboards compatible with all heat fan/sinks
* please note,I'm not going to overclock *
Seen the AMD Athlon X4 760K Quad Core 3.8GHz with a stock fan fore sale .
It £27 pound more then one of the cpu's above and a fan would this be a smarter thing to do ?
There is no question that you require some kind of cooler.
You could do worse than the stock AMD cooler. It is fairly respectable.
If you get the CPU without a cooler included, just make sure that the cooler you choose is compatible with the CPU's socket.
You will need thermal paste. The stock cooler comes with it pre-applied. Almost every newly purchased aftermarket cooler will come with enough for a couple applications. You would need to buy some if you got a used cooler.
