I have a AMD Sempron LE-1250. I wanted to upgrade my computer and bought a PNY NVIDIA Geforce GT 545. It helped, but now I would like to upgrade the processor. I want to get the AMD Phenom x4, which is quad-core. If i upgrade, will i need a better cooling system? I dont know what kind it is, but it is stock for the HP Pavilion. Thanks!
Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
If putting the processor into an HP motherboard, the stock heatsink/fan will work fine. Just make sure your current BIOS version supports the new processor before installing.
Hope it helps
