I am planning to buy AMD Athlon II X2 270u AM3 Socket low power CPU for my HTPC. But it is (apparently) sold only OEM. This brings me to the questions
Do I need a Heatsink and Fan for this low power CPU. It's TDP is 25W. If yes, then what would you recommend to install on ATX (or microATX) board with AM3 socket for a 25W TDP CPU? If not, do I need to make sure of certain cooling fans for my case?
Thanks for reading
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ but that low end low power low heat CPU could probably run without a heastsink and fan but do not attempt based on what I claim.
