ok, so i have some questions concerning cpu coolers! (specifically core 2 duo)

1. is installing a cpu cooler more dificult than installing a stock heatsink/fan, do you need to apply thermal paste?

2. if u were to buy a heatsink, would it only be useful if you were to overclock ur proc? if you jsut had it at stock settings, would it run cooler/ quieter? would it be worth while?

3. what is argueably the best budget CPU cooler for core 2 duos?

4.does anything in the BIOs needed to be changed when using a 3rd party fan?

5. would you recommened a 3rd party fan, or a stcok HSF for a 15 year old kid like me, who knows what he's doing, but has never done anything like it before?

6. does it put more strain on your pwoer supply?

7. considering how most coolers weight more than intel's, will it destroy the motherboard if you move the case around, say over to a friends house?

8. will having an aftermarket cooler make your CPU last longer if run at stock frequencies?


w/e, thanks for your help in advance, excuse my crude grammar

Sooooooo many questions in questions :D  - I'll try to answer them.

1.It can be - some have special mountings. Yes TP is required.

2.At default it would run about the same temp + or - a little.

3.Best budget the original HSF.

4.No, not usually.

5.No, use stock HSF. Good for moderate OC's.

6.No, not usually.

7.No, if mounted and handled correctly, but I wouldn't recommend heavy HSF's anyway.

8.No not realy, by the time CPU fails, upgrade would be needed anyway.

yeah, mmhmm, thanks for the help...

would you say it is dificult to install it though, with or without the backplate?

if i were to OC what would be a good stable OC on an e6400 that would let it easily last up to 5 years on a stock, or even 3rd party cooler?
