Hey guys, i've been thinking about doing my first build and been a bit nervous about messing up so i wanted to double check that all the parts will work together and make sure i have everything i need.
I do not plan to overclock.
I know the mobo can't sli/crossfire.
CPU AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ940XCJ4DGI - OEM link
APEX PC-389-C Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case link
Harddrive Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAJS 320GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive link
Heatsink COOLER MASTER DK9-7E52A-0L-GP CPU Cooler link
thermal compound MASSCOOL Fanner-420 Thermal Grease link
My main concern is the heatsink, on the specs it says it's compatible with the Phenom II X4 processor but only up to 65W. and the processor has a Thermal Design Power of 125W so would they be compatible? i haven't seen any other heatsinks with a watt limit so i was concerned.
