Do I need a heatsink? by Piffy
First time building a computer. I'm building with 3D modelling and graphics in mind. I see the questions about heatsinks and now wonder, do I need to add a heatsink to my list of things to buy? I'm going to use the Antec P182 case, an Antec Neopower 550W PSU, Abit Mobo.
If you go for an OEM CPU then you will need to get a heatsink too - take a look at the Arctic Cooling or the Coolermaster Hyper TX2
Question by andy
Hi i have a intel pentium 4 ht with a 3.2ghz memory but looking to purchase a quad core. Could you tell me if this will replace the one i have got or will i have problems getting it in?
They're physically the same - but I'd need more info about your MoBo before I can say for sure...
Awsome Cpu for Little money by Chris
Hey i just wanted to express my feelings for the Q6600 G0 stepping, current got mine overclocked to 3.7Ghz on air cooling, its on average twice as fast as my old amd fx-57 and that was a fast CPU, if your looking to buy a Intel Quad core this is defiantly the one to go for!
OEM or Retail by morgan
Hi, can someone, please tell me what is better to overclock OEM or Retail version and what is the difference between the two!
Both are pretty much identical - but the OEM has no heatsink with it
Compatible? by Ben
Hi, could you tell me if it is possible to put one of these on an Asus P5L-VM board, or should i look at getting a new mb first?
As far as I can see, you'll be fine - check with Asus for a BIOS update first though.
