Heatsink and Fan

by OrionOmega / January 1, 2010 11:05 AM PST

I have a desktop computer with an Intel Celeron processor, but is just 1.8ghz, so i'm thinking in buying an Intel Celeron Dual Core 2.2ghz (Is just and everyday computer, but I want to play Spore Galactic Adventures and with 1.8ghz I can't) so I found one at great price. But I wonder, Do I need to buy another heatsink and fan to my desktop, or the ones from my old Celeron work just fine?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Oh, I didn't knew that. Thanks and sorry to bother again, but, does it comes with the thermal compound/grease?

Normally comes with thermal grease pre-applied. Personally

I recommend you get a small tube of thermal grease just in case you have a problem and need to reapply the grease.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
