I've got a AMD Sempron LE-1250 and I'm getting a AMD Athlon X2 5600+, this is my first try at changing my computers hardware and I dont want to mess up. I know my motherboard supports the new one and the sockets are the same, I'm wondering a lot of oter stuff though, will the fan work with my new processor or will I have to get a new one and do I have to get some thermal grease? and is their anything else I need to know before I start?

The X2 5600+ should come with a fan and thermal grease, if it is a new CPU unopened box, and not sold as OEM or Tray.

The fan of the LE-1250 just might work, but you will need to clean off the old paste and re apply a new layer.
