Hello everyone, ok im about to buy an AMD 955 and ive been told by some friends and in some forums that the cpu fan and heatsink that comes with the cpu sucks and it wont handle de heat from the cpu. I really dont have more money to spend on a new fan so im wondering if anyone can confirm this. Thank you very much for the help.
you can easily overclock to 3.6Ghz most probably on your without much noise problem problems and upto 3.8Ghz with enough amount of noise.
I recommend buying an aftermarket cooler if you want 4Ghz or above or when you feel your cpu is falling behind in performance.
Else it is good to have the stock cpu cooler.
