So the issue is that my comp is the regular joe schmoe HP DC5750 SFF and bought that CPU mentioned for a quick cost effective upgrade. That being said, knowing what type of computer I have and the CPU, anyone know what brand heatsink will fit in my comp besides the stock heatsink/cooler or what the part number is to the CPU mentioned. Please help!
You probably should start a new topic for your question.
It sounds like you'll need to measure how much clearance you have in that case and compare with the dimensions for the cooler you are interested in. Cooler manufacturers will normally list the overall dimensions with the fan attached. I believe you'll need a cooler compatible with socket AM2 which shouldn't be too hard to find. Good luck.
