Heat sink

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm switching from a socket 463 to 754, can I use the same heat sink?
It looks like the bracket might not work, but if it does would it be ok?

Hey, welcome to the forums.
1. I had a HSF (TT BigTyphoon) that moved from socket A to 754, then to AM2 and finally to 755 - it is possible
2. If it does fit, then give it a go. Just keep an eye out on the temps as sk 754 CPUs can consume a bit more

thanks for the info.

what kind of temps are considered normal or acceptable for a 754?
