which heatsink and fan?

  wky 17:20 11 Apr 2006

Hi, I have a pc that is running an amd athlon 850mhz cpu and the fan on it has broken, so i'm changing the heatsink aswell. Does anyone know what cpu will fit on it? and what socket is that processor? thanks. I had a look on ebuyer but I didn't know if they will fit.

Hi, thanks. I just found it myself on wikipedia. I've looked on ebuyer but couldn't find any socket A heatsink and fans, can anyone help?

hi sorry, I realise some heatsink and fans are described as socket A but they are for sempron processors, would they also work on mine? Thanks.

click here for another option, Slot A was used by Pentium 2, some Athlons & Semprons. It didn't last that long before it was superseded and I doubt eBuyer stock them as it would be a low volume/value item that doesn't fit with their pile it high flog it cheap business model.

Nah, this is a slot processor, it is socket. But thanks.
