http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103741

and then i looked at the same exact product

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103747

i was like what the [bleep] o.O

my question is why theres a 65W beside it? what does it mean? how come is cheaper than the orginal one?

and lastly, does dual core heat up quicker? do i need to get a retail cpu cooler?

There's no point paying that sort of money to use an old cpu heatsink/fan. If you want this type of processor it obviously is designed to run much hotter and have a higher temperature resistance. That doesn't mean it is capable of running at ridiculously high temperatures all the time, so a good fan is always recommended.

The 65W just shows us it uses less energy and thus outputs less energy AMD CPUs were allready cool but the 65Ws are much cooler, the standard HSFs you get with a retail could probably run fanless with a 65W CPU(not that i would advise trying that).

highly recommend getting lower power consumption chip- you will not see any differences besides your electric bill :whistling:

No power difference in terms of performance it is just more energy efficient.
