Help with AMD heatsink Tags: CPUs Heatsinks AMD Last response: July 1, 2010 6:52 PM in CPUs Share guybrushT July 1, 2010 6:37:36 PM Hi, I am thinking of getting an older AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+. It is a 2.1 GHz, 65nm, 65 W. It does not come with a heatsink, but I have a stock AMD heatsink from my AMD Athlon X2 5050e, 2.6 GHz, 45W. It is the one pictured here: http://i619.photobucket.com/albums/tt272/smash_mouth01/... Is it possible to use the stock heat sink with the older 65W, 2.1 GHz processor, or will it overheat?
