My System


are you talking about the oem heatsinks? oem heatsinks should be used for the cpu it comes with or is made for and nothing else.

aftermarket heatsinks are dependant on wether they fit on that particular socket or not. Some cpus fit on 1155 and 1366 buit some will only do 1155 and 1156

Both processors ship with the following HSF:



In fact, the HSF is able to keep the system stable even when subjected to a slight overclock.
