Old Heatsink Tags: Heatsinks CPUs Overclocking Last response: February 19, 2013 7:46 PM in Overclocking Share rogerla February 18, 2013 11:24:16 PM I bought a new CPU, which came with a stock heatsink, but I upgraded for a better heatsink to better protect my investment. Is there any use for the stock heatsink or does it become a paperweight on my desk?
