I have an older Athlon II x2 260. I have just gotten my hands on my Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition. I made the mistake of getting the OEM edition of the Phenom. Can I use the Athlon heatsink on the newer chip? If not, will replacing the fan make it work better?
I am limited to fans from this site: http://www.memoryexpress.com/
The reason for this is that they are local, rather than me paying for shipping and waiting a week just for a fan. I was thinking of getting an 80mm to 120mm adapter and mounting a good 120mm fan to the old heatsink. Or getting the Cooler Master 212 Evo.
Which is the better option?
