    Hi guys

    I'm planning on buying a new CPU. It's the AMD Athlon(tm) 64 x2 dual core proccessor 6400+ 3.2 Ghz. Before I had the 4600+ 2.41 Ghz and i was wondering if i should buy a new cooler/heatsink fan too? I wouldn't like it to burn down so I decided to put it on the forums.
    So if you know please post

    If you're not planning on overclocking the CPU, the stock retail unit should be fine.

    But if you're still concerned you can check out this site for some reviews: www.frostytech.com

    When you buy the CPU (as long as it is in a retail box) it should come with a heatsink/fan in the box.
