Hi All, I am planning on upgrading my processor on my PC. Here are the specs I have now: Motherboard...ASUS P5W DH Deluxe. ATI Crossfire. CPU...Intel Core 2 Duo 6600 2.40 GHz. RAM...4 GB. Graphics... 2- ATI Radeon 3870s Windows Vista 32 bit.
I plan on upgrading to a Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor.
My question is.. Will I have to also change the cooling fan & heatsink? If so what would be the best one.
If you plan to purchase the Retail Box version it will come supplied with a heatsink and fan. If you have additional fans and a good airflow through your case (essential) then you should not have any problems.
