Is it possible to adapt the p4's stock hetsink/cooler in FM2 socket?
Cause the a10's stock cooler is crap; the coverage area is half of the cpu heat spreader. You can actualy see from the sides and top of the heatsink the exposed cpu heat spreader that the heatsink doesnt cover. Why this? To save aluminium cost??? . Just wtf now.. They overdid it. Because of this, the temps are high.
So I want to try the old cooler just to see the results. It may be older but it seems more robust and effective than the quickie one of FM2
No. I am not trying to overclock, I explained why I want to do it (if possible). So I asked here because (i did a deep google search before I post the topic) if its possible, it needs a work around, and here might be ppl that have seen all the changes through the sockets (I only have two pcs).
If there isnt a way, can someone tell if this cooler is good or if have something else at this type (that the fan is vertical to the cpu, not like the CM Hyper 212 Plus)?:
My budget is about the Artic cooler prize. Are u sure, what was the cpu u had? What about the site comparison with the stock of a A8-3850?
The CoolerMaster looks nice (dont know whats the performace compared to the Artic cooler), but come on, only 40000hrs lifespan??? My stock of 478 works after 10 years (!!!) (almost all day the pc was working). Thats why I dont like much the CoolerMasrter..
