    Question AMD XP 2400+ CPU cooling


    I just burned up 2 CPUs on my mobo. I called the mobo company and they said the heatsink was not working properly. The heatsink had a fan but the heatsink was for a old Pentium 200Mhz CPU. Could that just be my simpe problem. Sould I just get this heatsink with the fan below?

    never.....i shall say again...NEVER use another heatsink for a different cpu.only use it with supported cpu's. and no. if you are gonna get a cpu i would go with the thermaltake volcano +7.and some of the other members can probably help you more with which one you should get.
