Intel stock

Hello everyone,

I've been looking around and googling for a while, so here i am asking you guys.

I have a few different heatsinks (intel stock coolers) at work and i personally do not care about which one i put on which CPU, as long as it fits on the socket.


Socket 775

12v .60amp
12v .35amp
12v .20amp

Socket 1155/1156

12v .20amp
12v .28amp

One of my coworker keeps arguing that this is an important matter and will cause overheating.

What's your opinion?

Thanks in advance!

    Intel's stock coolers are often barely adequate for the processors that they are designed to cool. Putting the wrong cooler on a CPU could be dangerous.
  2. That info pretty much tells you nothing. You need to match or preferably exceed the rated performance of the cooler to the CPU.
