Get a retail version of the new CPU it will come with a decent heatsink / fan. Any top brand of paste will do it's job if you don't overclock, and with a Dell, you probably can't anyway. I use Artic Silver myself when I build computers. Kishere December 24, 2011 1:24:48 AM if you look on how it is designed i cant do much with it so i might as well get a thermal grease that will overclock i may buy it a better 500w modular cpu and do some moding my price limit is $550 but i cant fit any graphics card over 6 inches Can't find your answer ?
