Hey there, I just purchased an AMD FX 6100, and am currently cooling my Phenom II with a Zerotherm BTF 90 heatsink. I was just curious if the BTF 90 will be able to cool the new 6100 as well as the stock AMD heatsink it comes with or not.

Thanks for any help in advance.

You shouldn't have any problems as long as it fits on the motherboard. If you get good temps on your Phenom, you'll get comparable temps on the 6100.

(Just looked at the cooler on google and the shape is really weird :p )

Thanks man! I couldn't find a good chart on performance for the cooler. It is a weird looking sink from the top, but from the front of my case it looks really good.

Thanks again for the help! :)

A Zerotherm BTF 90 should cool your chip very well. You have nothing to worry about. Just use a good thermal paste. Arctic Silver is my favorite.
