Putting Phenom 965BE's stock fan on an old Athlon 5200+ CPU? Possible?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I bought a CM TX3 evo for my 965BE and I have my old computer with an AMD Athlon 5200+ with a small 60mm stock cooler that is also kinda tired. The old pc is turning into a HTPC/ mother's browser machine that i wish to be quieter than it is now. Is it possible to mount my Phenom's cooler on top of the Athlon 5200+ at all? Visually it really looks like it fits, but I can't find anywhere the model of the Phenom's stock Cooler master cooler to check compatibility.

Answers appreciated, as I'm ready to do the swap. Thanks

If you're wishing for it to be quieter than it is now then I would definitely not recommend the stock cooler for the 965BE. Speaking as a current 965BE owner, when I used the stock fan it was pretty loud.

i realise that it's not the quietest stock fan, but it's more quiet than what i got on the athlon currently. so it would be an upgrade, coolingwise and also as quietness. also it will be running on its slowest setting anyway as i bought a pwn 12" case fan also and a 92mm exhaust in a mini-tower configuration

i'm mostly interested if it fisically fits or not
