I'm trying to build a cheap computer for my roommate with some spare parts I have laying around. The problem is that I do not have a heatsink/fan for an Athlon XP 1800. I do however have my stock cooler for my Athlon64. Does anyone know if the stock heatsink and fan for my A64 can be used with an Athlon XP? Any replies would be appreciated.
It should cool that athlon xp just fine, the challenge will be to rig it on there
If the socket a mobo you have has mounting holes it will probably make it a lot easier to mount. About all you can do is sit there and tinker with it until you find some way of getting it on there securely. Without sitting down with all the pieces in my hands it is hard to know exactly what would work.
What Mobo is it? Something might come to mind.
