Strange one this I know but, to keep it short, I've bought a motherboard and a core 2 duo E8400. The CPU was made AFTER the MB came out so the MB doesn't support the E8400. I need to flash the bios of the MB to make it work. To be able to do this, i needed a temporary compatible CPU. So i bought this Celeron 420. Only prob is it came without a fan/heatsink (i think it's pre-used).
What i need to know is, do i need a heatsink scpecific to the Celeron to use it or would i be able to use the heatsink (only temporarily) from my E8400 or Pentium 4?
