Surface size of Heat Sink

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I purchased a Athlon ll X2 245 Regor 2.9Ghz Socket AM3 and the person I bought it from said he'd send me the stock HeatSink/Fan for a X3 450, which is a 3.2 Ghz triple core. Here is the problem. The CPUmeasures about 1.437" the HS surface is like 1 187" before the HS fins run out. I think this is too small. Will it work or is it wrong? Thanks Dan

if it is the stock HS it will work. The stock heatsinks aren't very big, even for phenom II quads.

If you want better cooling for overclocking get an aftermarket heatsink.

As long as it covers the middle, where the actual cpu is, it's fine.

it covers the CPU but the fins would also be covering the CPU by about 1/4"

The cores are in the middle of the cpu, something like 3/4" x 3/4", so you dont have to worry about

thanks for the quick responses. I can rest easy. I may look for another but I can't beleive AMD is selling this lightweight stuff. Seems like companies are cutting cost any way they can. With this HS it is about as cut-down as it can get.
Thanks again Dan

because the chips don't put out that much heat anymore, and the company doesn't make the HS for you to overclock with.
