I have just got hold of an AMD 4200 dual core, 939 socket processor, but it came without heatsink and fan. I have now a AMD 3500+ single core which runs at 2.2 speed, the same as the dual core.

Does anyone know if the old heatsink and fan would be good enough to use with the new processor. I suspect not, but it don't hurt to ask. Cheers

One more thing i think i should add. I never overclock, so that won't be an issue. Thanks

It's ok, ill answer my own question.

I put the dual core in and used the stock heatsink and fan that came with the amd 3500+ single core. Everything ran well.

To put the dual core to work i decided to run ntune stability test for one hour, i also ran a dvd to avi converter program in the background. I chose this because it uses a lot of processing power.

I also ran temperature program to watch temps.

====================================================

Core 0, Ran at temps of 52c-55c, at loads between 12%-70%. No probs.

Core 1, Ran at temps of 55c-58c, at loads between 85%-100% No probs.

System temp a constant 65c, everything ran stable and well.
