I exchanged the processor in my PC. Now an AMD Athlon 64 X2 (89W) is inside.
I also got a cooler with a fan for this processor. Unfortunately this fan is very noisy. Could I use the cooler and the fan of the old processor (boxed Processor)? This is an AMD Athlon 64 (65W). I looked for the specification of the old cooler and its fan but until now I didn't find anything... Maybe you can help me.

I have a Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 6000+ Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 2000 MHz FSB) which came with a latch type of heatsink/cooler. I was the dumby that didn't the fine print on ebay. 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!
