Adequate Cooling?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just bought a cheap CPU upgrade (Athlon 64 X2 4400+) to replace my current CPU (Athlon 64 3200+), but was unable to install it because the fan/heatsink that came with it was incompatible with my dell system (capacitors are right next to the CPU socket). My questions are, will my old fan and heatsink be sufficient for cooling this new CPU? And what kind of information is needed to answer such a question, and where can I find it? My dell is a dimension E521 (documentation on the system here: http://support.dell.com/support/edoc...1/en/index.htm) if that will help any. Oh, and here is a link to the new CPU I bought. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103213

Here's a picture of the old heatsink: (best I could find) http://support.dell.com/support/edoc...N/shiner_9.jpg

And here's a picture of the one that came with the new CPU: http://www.pacificgeek.com/productim...D-AM2-4200.jpg

So, what do you guys think?
