the fans you linked me where for my broken pc the amd phenom the fan im looking for is for the amd fx 4100
I am a little concerned with using a case fan as im not sure they have the same RPM or at least enough for the use i give it, I play very demanding games for hours on end, and the last thing i want is for the processor to overheat, so i either need to get a new heatsink with fan and get the guts to fit it correctly, or just hope that i can get a fan that will fot my current sink, but how do i measure what size fan i need?
You said earlier;
i was kind of hoping that i didnt have to swap out the heat sink aswell as im not too keen on putting new heat putty, not too sure how to do it properly to be honest.
You then asked a question and I answered it - I also mentioned the temps and rpm information The suggested Product description;
Other than being installed for 24 hours whilst waiting for a different cooler to arrive this is brand new, it looks and works as such. I will include a sachet of thermal paste in order to apply to the cpu before installation.
Genuine AMD heatsink and fan from a retail boxed A10 5800K socket AM2 CPU. This fan / heatsink will cool the AMD Sempron, Athlon, FX, X2, X4, AM2, AM3 and FM1 range of processors.
The fan is easily removable if you wanted to add a coloured fan instead.
This fan will work with sockets 754, 939, 940, FX, AM2, AM3 and FM1 pin Athlon 64 processor.
The crux of it is that you would be far better to purchase a new heatsink and cooling fan that is specific to your CPU as it will have a guarantee, have a pre applied thermal pad on the HS + be 100% compatible.
