Heatshrink and Fan for CPU question Tags: CPUs Fan Last response: March 24, 2010 3:07 AM in CPUs Share Maksym March 24, 2010 2:48:56 AM Hi, I am a newbie to hardware. I have Pentium 4 3.4GHz CPU and I found a good deal (from Craiglist) for E6420, but the person sells CPU only. Will my heatshrink and fan be ok for this new CPU and, if not, what can I do?
