When I bought my processor a few months ago, the Intel stock HSF was very hard to install on my old OEM motherboard. The old HSF on it used screws and the Intel one uses pushpin.
. Somehow I magically got it to install, but my brother had bad luck with his. He ended up gluing the Intel stock HSF to his motherboard


A few months later, I noticed unusual temperatures with my Intel Stock HSF...
60C on IDLE and up to 100C on load (usually at 96)..
this forced me to buy a new CPU cooler for $30 bucks on newegg...
when I took off the Intel Stock HSF, I noticed that the thermal compound on it didn't spread over the CPU. *** is wrong with it? Is it supposed to be like that?


I just received an AMD CPU yesterday and I have to say they did a great job on their cooler.

Easy to install, Thermal paste isn't that bad, and it actually doesn't do a bad job at cooling.

The extra $30 for a cooler was worth it.
40C idle, 60C load.

O_O my one worked perfectly. 45 idle, 70 load IIRC.

The Intel stock heatsink just works.

It doesn't work well, but it works.

On the other hand, AMD ones are nicely matched to the CPU's, provided you don't OC them.
With the PhII X4 heatpipe coolers though, you can get a nice OC on them.
