Hi.
I'm thinking of buying an oem socket 754 3700. I have a stock heatsink and fan from an xp1600 and was wondering if it would work.

It will not work.

Mainly because the new Athlon64s come with a vastly different heatsink mounting mechanism, that takes the mounting frame off the socket and onto a replaceable bracket that surrounds the processor area.

Solution:

1) You can get a PIB version of the processor, which comes with a approved processor cooler

2) You can grab a cheap Athlon64 cooler from newegg or directron. /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' /> ( But if you consider the final price, you might just want to get a PIB, just a thought. )
