    stock coolers - Phenom II on a Athlon II X4

    simple question which requires a nice simple answer.

    will the stock cooler from a Phenom II X4 920 cool an athlon II X4 620 better than its own stock cooler?

    i'm assuming they come with different coolers, and that the phenom cooler is beefier than the athlon one due to the higher TDP.


    should be a simple question (probably isnt though)

    also too knackered to google answer myself

    Re: stock coolers - Phenom II on a Athlon II X4

    Simple answer: YES!!

    The Athlon II X4 probably comes with an all aluminium cooler like the Phenom II X3.
