Phenom 8750 and cooling requirements


K

kenk

I am going to be building my first AMD-based computer. I have settled
on the 8750--it will be used mainly in a business environment without
gaming, so it will not be very "stressed".

What kind of cooling apparatus is needed for this cpu? Is there a
cooler provided by AMD? Is it sufficient? Quiet? Reliable? If not, and
if I choose a 1 lb of copper-finned monster, will I need any additional
bolt-on parts to support a large cooler to the mb?

Thanks

AMD provides quite decent stock coolers with the phenom line.

If you're not doing overclocking or whatever, I don't know why you'd
need anything else.

[Or even if you _are_ doing overclocking maybe:

as miles said the stock is good enough, but in order to get the cooler you
have to buy a boxed cpu tray cpus atre just the cpu and i believe the part
number will say boxed like
HD8750WCGHBOX where a tray might say HD8750WCJ3BGH. and you get just cpu

Thanks. I will stay with the stock cooler. I don't want to spend money
if it is not needed. Many thanks, Ken
