    Will my current CPU cooler be enough?

    Heyas.

    Installed currently I have an AMD X2 4400+ AM2 with it's stock heatsink and fan, I'm wondering will this HSF be able to support an X2 6000+ chip? If not I'd be looking for the cheapest and easiest (Clip on design) alternate cooler. I'm having trouble finding one.

    Seems to be a great cooler!
    I like the easy installation, shame some of the intel ones aren't so easy.

    yeah I had my first go of pushpins the other week and I swear I really threw it out of the window, never again its clip-on or bolt-on from now on

    Re: Will my current CPU cooler be enough?

    I've got to add if you are buying a third party cooler; at £18 I would recomend the hyper 212 over the freezer64. Postage is free at Play too.

    I'd check to see if your case is wide enough first.

    @OP Does your current cooler have heatpipes in it or is it just a block of aluminium?
